Some people have a lot of experience with needing criminal defense. Other New Hampshire citizens have never seen the inside of a police booking area or jail. Whether a repeat offender needs help or it's the first time you or someone you know is charged with a crime, a properly presented defense is what might make all the difference.
We call the type of work we do street law. That means we advocate for people who need help with, among other everyday life issues, criminal allegations. We call it street law because our main focus is on individuals and families – our neighbors and friends in Rochester and the surrounding area. Because our time isn't devoted to big business issues or highly publicized celebrity-type criminal cases, each of our clients enjoys personalized and precise help based on the most effective defense strategy possible.
Many, if not most, criminal cases don't actually end up in a trial. This is usually because a thorough investigation and skilled application of the law to the evidence allows for either proof of innocence or successful negotiations with prosecutors. Presenting a case from a position of in-depth understanding of the defendant often opens the door to options and solutions that minimize penalties and long-term consequences.
Accusations of white collar or gun crimes receive the same careful evaluation as traffic violations. Sexual offenses can be some of the most sensitive, with lifelong repercussions for a defendant. An effective defense may minimize the impact of any suspected crime on families and jobs. Theft and other property crimes often involve juveniles, and drunk driving charges aren't just a passing inconvenience.
The same diligent approach on your behalf to any type of allegation can make a difference in the outcome. You can find more detailed information about our street law practice on our criminal defense pages.
