As opposed to civil law, which governs actions between individuals, criminal law involves offenses against the state. Criminal law not only determines which crimes are considered offenses to the state, but an individual’s rights before, during and after a criminal process – from the initial arrest through the last appeal.
Our experienced legal staff can help you in the unfortunate chance that you’re arrested for a criminal offense. From domestic violence to drug-related offenses to being found driving while intoxicated, or even for a simple traffic violation, we will make sure your rights are protected under criminal law. We also practice in juvenile arrests and record expungement.
