We handle all types of drug offenses including possession, distribution, cultivation, manufacturing, and importation.
  • Violent Crimes - Violent crimes include those such as murder, assault, aggravated assault, assault with a deadly weapon, and battery.

  • White Collar Crimes - White-collar crime involves nonviolent criminal activity such as fraud, bribery, and embezzlement. These types of crimes may be charged as state crimes. Oftentimes these types of offenses are more serious if they are charged as federal crimes such as mail fraud, bank fraud, securities fraud, conspiracy, or embezzlement of government funds, false statements involving federal investigations or in the receipt of federal benefits or administration of programs involving federal benefits. If you are charged with a white-collar crime, we are the experienced attorneys you need by your side.

Jail time is routinely sought even in first offense or non-injury cases. We will provide you with aggressive representation to ensure your rights are protected.
  • Felonies - We provide effective counsel to clients charged with any type of felony, such as arson, armed violence, carjacking, escape, kidnapping, and terrorist threats.
  • Misdemeanors - A misdemeanor is a crime normally punishable by less than a year in a jail.
