Types of Criminal Charges We Defend Against

Our Manchester attorney team is prepared to take on a range of criminal cases, including but not limited to the following charges:

  • Assault and battery
  • Child pornography
  • Domestic violence
  • Drug crimes
  • Federal crimes
  • Driving while intoxicated (DWI/DUI)
  • Internet crimes
  • Juvenile crimes
  • Manslaughter
  • Murder
  • Sex offenses
  • Theft crimes
  • White-collar crimes

If you have been charged with a serious crime, it is crucial that you have a seasoned criminal defense attorney on your side. From reduced job and housing opportunities to strained personal relationships, to social stigma, to the emotional and mental hardship of incarceration, the consequences of conviction can easily last a lifetime. Do not settle for less when it comes to protecting your future.

A Thorough, Tailored Approach to Criminal Defense

In each criminal defense case we take on, we leverage our experience as former prosecutors to predict which strategies the prosecution is likely to use. We then utilize this insight to tailor our defense strategy, doubling down on its strengths and mitigating its weaknesses.

We will also work to uncover any errors made by the prosecution or law enforcement officers, such as with scientific testing, due process, search and seizure, and the reading of your Miranda rights. A minor error could result in a dropped charge or reduced penalty.
