The Importance Of Obtaining Experienced Legal Representation

If you have been charged with or are under investigation for a crime, it is vital that you contact a criminal defense lawyer immediately. If you obtain legal representation early enough, you may even be able to avoid having charges filed altogether. To whatever stage your case has proceeded, however, it is never too late to fight for your rights and freedom. When you face potentially life-altering consequences, you need a lawyer who will explore every possible defense, who will work tirelessly on your behalf and, if a trial becomes necessary, who can zealously represent you before a judge or jury.

The right legal representation can mean the difference between a ruined life and a salvaged future if you have been charged with:

  • Driving under the influence
  • Drug possession
  • Drug manufacturing
  • Drug delivery
  • Drug trafficking
  • Theft crimes
  • Shoplifting
  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • White collar crimes
  • Fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Violent crimes
  • Murder
  • Manslaughter
  • Assault
  • Sex crimes
  • Rape
  • Prostitution
  • Child pornography
  • Internet crimes
  • Domestic violence
  • Federal crimes

Unfortunately, even being innocent does not necessarily protect you from potential penalties when you have been accused of a crime. Consequences can extend beyond those ordered by the court and include damage to your reputation and your personal relationships. Our firm will take prompt action with your case and work to have your charges dropped or reduced. If a trial is necessary, our criminal trial team of Paul Morrison and former prosecutors Chris Whelan bring over 100 years of combined battle-tested trial experience to fight for you.
