Criminal Law involves cases that are being prosecuted by the state or city government because it allegedly threatens or harms public safety. Charges in criminal law typically involve police, and charges are brought by a Prosecuting Attorney (also called a DA in some areas). There are multiple categories of crimes, misdemeanors (less serious offenses) and felonies (more serious crimes). While felonies are typically more serious, either type of offense can cause unforeseen problems if not handled properly by experienced legal counsel. These types of cases can be tried in either municipal (city) or county courts, depending on where the alleged offense occurred. We are able to assist you with either of the court systems.

Our law office provides experienced legal counsel for most criminal cases including traffic tickets, DWI/DUI, and major crimes (robbery, burglary, theft, stealing, fraud and drug offenses).
