If you have been arrested and charged with a crime in Vermont, your best chance for a favorable outcome is hiring an experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney. In a criminal case, it is the defense lawyer who stands between the accused and the full weight and resources of the state. The prosecutor will do everything possible to obtain a conviction; you should do everything possible to protect your rights to a fair and just outcome. If you or someone you know has been charged with a crime in Vermont, call me for a free consultation.
I personally handle each case to ensure that my clients have the very best chance to have their cases resolved in the best way possible. While each client may have different goals and different needs, each deserves and receives my individual attention. In many large firms clients may conference with their principal attorney while much of the actual work is performed by less experienced paralegals or associates. That is not how I practice.
As law enforcement tactics and methods have become more technical and complex, the field of criminal defense has of necessity become more specialized. While many lawyers in Vermont will occasionally handle criminal matters, the intricacies of modern criminal defense practice require an attorney whose focus is on this one area of the law.
Figuring out what to do when you’ve been arrested and accused of a crime can be stressful and confusing. Call for a free consultation and we can discuss your options and some of the specific details of your case.
