Leon County criminal defense lawyer looking out for the rights of the accused
Being subject to a criminal prosecution is understandably a frightening experience. You may feel that you are at the mercy of the system with everyone – the police, the district attorney, the judge, an unsympathetic jury – against you. But it is important to realize there are steps you can take to protect yourself and make the best of a bad situation. In a criminal case, the prosecutor has the burden of proving the case against you beyond a reasonable doubt, which is a tough burden to meet. On your side, you have constitutional protections in the Bill of Rights, and an attorney to protect those rights and advise you on the best strategy for success. No matter what the situation is, we can likely help you to some degree, but you must call us as soon as possible to maximize your chances.

- Homicide, from Involuntary Manslaughter to Capital Murder
- Fraud, Internet Crime and White collar Crime
- Sex Offenses, including Sexual Assault and Possession of Child Pornography

No matter what offense you have been charged with, there are two things you should know: 1) you are entitled to defend yourself against the charges with the assistance of an attorney; and 2) the consequences of a conviction can have long-lasting, far-reaching negative effects on your personal and professional life.
