We understand the local courts, prosecutors and law enforcement agencies. We can tell when a particular incident has been overcharged against you, and we can intervene with the circuit solicitor to seek lesser charges that can improve your chances of a favorable resolution.
The breadth of our experience allows us to take a flexible approach to your case so that we can make the most of your strengths and the government's weaknesses, no matter what they might be.

We go to work for you from the moment you first contact us. We're often able to interview investigating officers even before the prosecution does. Depending on the circumstances, we can use our own investigators to develop facts to assist in your defense.
Whether you're facing charges of assault, manslaughter, robbery, illegal weapons possession, or any other violent offense, we can help you from the first appearance and bond hearing through trial and sentencing.
