It is normal to be scared and stressed out if you have been charged with a crime. It is also normal to want the assistance of an attorney in defending yourself and in telling your side of the story. I can help you protect your rights if you have been charged with:
- Drug offenses, including misdemeanor and felony possession of marijuana, possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine, and cocaine trafficking
- Misdemeanor or felony larceny or shoplifting: Wal-Mart and other businesses will prosecute shoplifters even for items of very little value, so it is important to defend yourself.
- Assault charges, including simple assault, assault on a female, which may carry a penalty of up to 150 days in jail, or assault on a government official.
- Breaking and entering and theft charges, including breaking and entering a motor vehicle, breaking and entering a residence, or burglary
In defending my clients, I thoroughly research the events that led to the charges. I study the evidence, speak to witnesses and hold the prosecution to their responsibility to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
As a defendant, you have many legal rights under the law. You do not have to testify in court, and if you are facing a serious accusation, you may be able to use a plea to avoid jail time. Strategies and outcomes will depend on your circumstances.
