Defending You With The Expertise and Aggressive Tactics Needed For A Favorable Case Outcome, Call Today!

Our criminal justice system can be overwhelming and frightening. The incarceration rate in the United States is much higher than that of other industrialized countries. Prison sentences are getting longer and more frequent. If you face the possibility of being accused of a crime, contacting an experienced criminal defense lawyer as early in the process as possible, preferably even before questioning or investigation by the police, is the best thing to do. A skilled attorney can fight for your legal and constitutional rights.

Attorney David Pettyjohn has been practicing law since 1975. He has been both a prosecuting and a defense attorney which gives him the experience to know what the both sides are thinking. With his aggressive defense (when appropriate) to his professional demeanor, Attorney Pettyjohn is just the attorney you both need and want. Because Attorney Pettyjohn has a reputation for trying winning cases, he is able to negotiate for good plea bargains when that is appropriate.
