Supporting the Tenent of “Innocent Until Proven Guilty”

In order to convict someone in a criminal case, they must prove that the defendant is guilty beyond reasonable doubt. In America, the presumption is of innocence. This country holds that you are innocent until proven guilty. The prosecution bears the burden of proof. Our system is founded on this principle of justice. We will defend you from any potential pitfalls, false claims or bad lawsuits.

We will do the necessary research to defend you as your criminal defense attorney. To understand the larger picture, we will examine every aspect and angle of your case.

Every stage of the process is governed by effective strategies. Our attorneys operate with the highest standards in precision, excellence and ethics, from pre-trial motions to discovery, jury selection, trial presentation, cross-examination and closing arguments.

Our Plan of Attack

Each case is unique and each approach will be different.  However, the attention to detail, preliminary processes, and overall approach are consistent. We review all evidence and any relevant documents. We discuss the events and detail and handle any forensic evidence and testimony that may be required. We also interview witnesses to determine weaknesses in the case of the opposing side.

Common Criminal Cases

Many people mistakenly believe that criminal charges only apply to violent offenses. But criminal law covers many other crimes and offenses. All of them are dealt with.Serious criminal charges can also be brought against other crimes, such as federal white-collar and state white-collar crime. We are experienced criminal defense lawyers and have handled many cases over the years.Among the cases we have worked with are:

  • White-collar crime: Federal and state

Criminal Charges

There are many types of criminal charges you could be facing. It all depends on whether the charges are federal or state.


These charges are classified as a criminal category and generally are less severe than felony charges, but are more serious than most citations or infractions. These charges can involve minor injuries or damage to property. A felony charge can be reduced to a misdemeanor in certain cases with the right defense. Some examples of misdemeanors include:

  • Crimes against a Person
    • Assault and battery, false imprisonment or harassment.
  • Property crime
    • Shoplifting, theft and larceny.
  • Public order violations
    • Minor possession, disorderly conduct, prostitution, noise violations, trespassing or disorderly behavior.


Felons are more serious and can result in longer prison sentences, usually exceeding one year. There are four types of felony: first, second, third, and fourth. A felony charge can be serious, but the more severe the crime, the more serious it is. Common felony charges include:

  • Drug Possession
    • Charge of possession, handling, and selling illicit drugs.
  • Property crime
    • Car theft, burglary and other major thefts.
  • Violent Crimes
    • Murder, robbery and assault.
