Building Your Case

Our experienced criminal defense attorneys will look at the full circumstances surrounding your arrest to help build your case. Your rights may have been violated, or important steps may have been missed by careless law enforcement officers. We will look for holes in the prosecution’s case to build a strong defense on your behalf.

In some instances, special courts may be willing to hear your trial and offer alternate sentencing. If your possession of paraphernalia stemmed from a drug abuse problem, we can assist you in getting treatment instead of punishment. This is often a better solution for everyone involved.

No matter what stance we take for your defense, we will work tirelessly to ensure your rights are protected and justice is truly served.
