Let us defend your rights

against Felony Charges

The type of crime you are charged with will affect the penalties you will face if you are convicted. In most cases, prosecutors add on as many charges as possible to make your case seem more daunting. Our attorneys can review the charges against you and look for any instances where they can be dismissed or reduced before a trial even occurs. In some cases, it may even be possible to have all charges dismissed or plead down without a trial. We make sure you will not be punished for an offense you did not commit just because an overzealous prosecutor tried to enhance your charges.
