Call Us Now to Discuss Your Legal Options
Bad things do happen to good people. Just because you were arrested on suspicion of drinking and driving, committing a drug crime or other criminal act, it doesn't mean that you have to just let the state or county have its way with you. An experienced criminal defense and DUI attorney can protect your freedoms.
The evidence against you might be strong, but does it prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you are guilty? Prosecutors almost always overcharge and under deliver on the proof, in the hopes that you won't get a good lawyer. The charges you face can be greatly reduced with the right defense lawyer in your corner.
