Criminal Defense

If you have been charged with a DUI/ DWI or breathalyzer refusal, we can help minimize the stress and penalties that accompany these charges.  Our firm is 100% dedicated to getting excellent results for our clients, and we provide aggressive and strategical representation for all clients facing DUI and refusal charges.  With extensive pre-trial investigations, we are able to successfully negotiate with prosecutors to get charges significantly reduced and dropped.  We have successfully won suppression hearings that exclude breathalyzer results and obtained not guilty verdicts at trial, saving clients from hefty fines, lengthy license suspensions, and criminal convictions.  If you are looking to minimize fines and get excellent results, contact us today for a free consultation.
