Developing A Solid Defense Strategy

We will carefully review the facts of your case to develop an intelligent strategy for your defense. We will comb through all the evidence, review the police reports, retain our own investigator or expert witnesses when necessary and prepare your case thoroughly for trial. Our years of experience often allow us to see opportunities that may not be readily apparent.

Our lawyers are experienced in representing clients in high-profile cases that generate extensive media attention. We work just as hard on cases that never make the headlines. In addition to defending clients charged with murder, we represent clients charged with homicide, aggravated assault and other violent crimes at trial and on appeal.
