Sound Advice on State or Federal Felony Charges

Our criminal defense practice covers the full spectrum of serious charges. Our objective in felony defense is to find the most effective way to resolve the case on favorable terms. In all cases, this involves a careful review of the evidence against you and an accurate assessment of the government's ability to prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt.

Sometimes we are able to achieve an early dismissal of the case. In other situations, we are able to negotiate a favorable compromise plea. In cases where it appears that a jury trial represents your best chance for a positive outcome, we will make sure that you are fully advised about your options and your chances for success.

We represent people facing such state or federal felony charges as:

  • Homicide
  • Assault
  • Sex offenses
  • Weapons offenses
  • Sex crimes
  • Drug crimes

In some situations, we ar able to negotiate the referral of felony charges to municipal court, where your greatest exposure to the risk of incarceration is limited to six months.
