Drunk Driving Charges
There are two aspects to every drunk driving case: the criminal charges and the administrative proceedings initiated by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). We can effectively handle both parts of your DUI/DWI case and protect your rights throughout the process.
We have a great deal of experience representing clients facing drug-related charges, including:
- Possession of marijuana/possession of narcotics
- Possession with intent to sell
- Sale of narcotics
- Conspiracy to sell/distribute narcotics
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Operating a drug factory
Theft crimes fall into many categories, and we have represented clients in all of these contexts:
- Persistent larceny offenders
- Financial fraud
- Money laundering/embezzlement
- Credit card crimes
- Identity theft
- Mortgage fraud
- Bank fraud
Whether you are the victim of domestic assault or the alleged perpetrator in a domestic violence case, our firm can assist you. We represent clients for all domestic violence issues, such as seeking protective orders and/or restraining orders, protecting your right to live in your home and retain or share custody of your children, or defending you against false accusations of domestic violence. Domestic violence allegations can drastically impact your future, so it is essential that you take them seriously.
Sex Crimes/Violent Crimes
For sexual and violent crimes, time is of the essence. It is important to mount a defense in these cases quickly and aggressively, to ensure that important evidence is not lost. We begin investigating your case so that we can obtain time sensitive information such as security tapes, phone records and other important evidence before such evidence can be destroyed or erased. We understand issues specific to these types of crimes.
Possession of child pornography carries drastic penalties in both state and federal court, and we know how to investigate and defend you against these charges. We also assist our clients in understanding sex offender registry and probation restrictions facing convicted sex offenders.
Whether you were charged with a crime involving a firearm or with unlawful possession of a weapon, we have the knowledge and experience to help you fight your charges. We represent clients charged with gun crimes and other crimes involving the use of a weapon in state and federal court.
If you are being prosecuted in federal court, every aspect of your case will be different from and more complicated than a criminal state case. We have represented many clients facing federal criminal prosecution and have had excellent results both during pretrial negotiations and at trial. We handle all types of federal offenses, including federal drug crimes, firearms offenses and financial crimes such as wire and bank fraud.
Juveniles are treated differently under our criminal justice system. The juvenile justice system operates under a completely different set of rules and laws than the adult criminal justice system. The intent of juvenile law is to hold children and adolescents under the age of 18 accountable for their conduct while still allowing them the opportunity to focus on rehabilitation. Out goal is to ensure that your child will not sustain long-term consequences for alleged criminal activity, such as expulsion from school or having a criminal record.
We will do everything possible to ensure that your child's record is protected and that he or she gets the right kind of intervention, if necessary, to ensure no further involvement with the criminal justice system. Areas we handle in juvenile court include:
- Drugs/alcohol charges
- Assault charges
- Sexual assault charges
- Larceny and burglary charges
- School expulsions
- Motor vehicle offenses
Criminal Appeals and Erasing Your Record
We have the experience to help you with criminal appeals and expungement:
- Obtain a pardon from the Board of Pardons and Paroles
- Erase your record with an expungement
- Modify your probation so that you can move forward with your life

Traffic Violations/Motor Vehicle Offenses
Our representation in the area of traffic violations includes:
- Driving under the influence/DUI
