Types of Criminal Cases We Represent

In the face of criminal charges, you can’t afford to cut corners or settle for a subpar attorney. When you work with our team, you won’t have to. Backed by more than 10 years of legal experience, we know how to fight and win, and we’re uncompromising in our pursuit to put your case to rest.

Contact us if you’ve been accused or charged with any of the following:

  • DUI / DWI
  • Drug Possession
  • Federal Criminal Charges
  • Felony Criminal Charges
  • Misdemeanor Criminal Charges
  • Possession by a Minor

When working to establish your defense, we’ll fully investigate the matter from top to bottom. One of the strongest forms of defense is preparation, which is why we make sure to arm ourselves with as much information about the events leading up to your arrest and/or charges as possible. The more we know, the better we can prepare for any angle that may be used in court.

In our efforts to uncover every possible piece of evidence that could be used against you, we will:

  • Identify additional witnesses
  • Search for signs of coercion and duress
  • Find evidence that corroborates our defense
  • Obtain and review surveillance tapes, if they exist
  • Conduct background checks on the prosecution’s witnesses
  • Review reports for missing and/or contradictory information and evidence

Once we have all the details we need to strategize an effective defense against your charges, we’ll then consider and discuss your options with you, i.e. taking a plea deal vs. preparing for trial vs. seeking full dismissal of your charges.

Although the circumstances of each differ, one universal truth is that a stain on your criminal record will follow you for years. That is why it is important to secure aggressive representation as soon as possible. The sooner you involve an attorney in your case, the quicker you can build a solid defense against your charges.

    “We we're very nervous about driving 3 hours just to get an attorney but upon arrival we immediately felt comfortable. The estimated process time given to us from this office was 6-9 months and we finished everything before the 9 months which was amazing. Thanks to Ashley, Josue, Maria and Karen we succeeded in getting my husband's Green Card. Our family can finally live in peace knowing we will not he separated. We have felt like these people became part of our family. Nothing about this felt like an attorney on client relationship, everything was personal and very professional and we could not have asked for a better experience. We will definitely be hiring Ashley again for the removal of conditions for my husband and hopefully my husband decides to do his citizenship so we can again, hire Ashley.
