Skilled Misdemeanor Criminal Defense

Included within our robust criminal practice, we often represent clients facing misdemeanor charges. Misdemeanors are separated into different levels depending on the seriousness of the crime and the length of the possible sentence. Among the lengthy list of misdemeanors, some common misdemeanor crimes that we defend include:

  • First or second OWI/DWI — drunk driving charge
  • Assault
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Drug offenses
  • Domestic abuse
  • Prostitution
  • Trespassing

If you have been charged with a misdemeanor, get ahead of your case by consulting with an experienced lawyer who understands the importance of a clean criminal record.

Strong Defense For A Wide Variety Of Traffic And DOT Violations

The most pressing questions we receive from our clients who are facing traffic violations involve their driver's licenses. No one wants to lose a driver's license, even for a short period of time. Especially for CDL (commercial driver's license) drivers, that driver's license is crucial to your life and livelihood. We help clients keep from losing their driving privileges.

We can represent you in a wide variety of traffic violation cases involving issues like:

  • Serious or major traffic violations
  • Department of Transportation (DOT) driver's license revocations proceedings
  • Commercial driver's license matters, including license revocation defense
  • Hit-and-run
  • Speeding tickets/moving violations
  • Driving while revoked/driving while suspended/driving while barred
  • Probation violations
  • Habitual offender violations
  • Temporary work permits
  • OWI/DUI — drunk driving offenses
