Turn To A Criminal Defense Attorney Who Will Fight For You

Have you been arrested, charged with a crime or named as a suspect? Do not fall into the traps of investigators who try to trick you into telling them what they want to hear, even if it is not the truth. Insist on your right to legal counsel. Tell the law enforcement officer, “I need to call my lawyer.” You may be under suspicion of:

  • A drug offense
  • A violent crime
  • Domestic violence
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol (DUI)
  • Theft
  • Violating probation

The most important thing you can do in your own self-defense is to hold on to your right to keep silent. For a strong chance at a solid defense, contact an attorney at Hurdle & Hughes Attorneys at Law. Allow us to explain how we can help you right away. Our attorneys are dedicated to protecting your freedom and your future. We will work with you to devise a customized strategy in your defense. We will evaluate the factors likely to affect the complexity and outcome of your case, including:

  • The seriousness of the offense
  • Prior offenses and violations on your record
  • The use of private investigators or expert witnesses
  • Necessary court procedures

We will take nothing for granted until we have carried out a thorough investigation. The key to success often comes through careful consideration of a wide range of details that come to light through persistence.

Level The Playing Field Of The Prosecution Versus Your Side

Keep in mind that the state has vast resources to work with, including highly trained prosecutors who will do their best to convict you of your charges. A conviction could mean probation, time in jail or prison, and other penalties. To maintain some control of your own destiny, resolve now to do all that you can in your own defense.

We are dedicated to fighting for you. We will not urge you to make a plea deal to put an end to your case. We will educate you on the law and advise you on the most promising ways to respond to the charges against you. For example, this might mean taking a deferred sentencing with time in between to get drug dependency treatment. Every case is unique, and we will address yours in a personalized way.
