So what exactly is criminal defense? It is a strategic argument that attempts to challenge the validity and sufficiency of the prosecution's evidence. The prosecution is the party trying to prove the criminal charges against you.

With over five decades of criminal defense experience, our criminal defense attorneys know how to tailor a criminal case to meet your unique goals.
