Criminal Defense

Criminal Defense

Criminal law differs from civil law in that, while only money or property is at stake in a civil case, severe fines as well as your liberty or even your life can be at risk in a criminal case. The violation of a criminal statute can result in the assessment of fines and the imposition of probation and/or incarceration. This firm has represented clients charged with offenses ranging from misdemeanors to first degree murder. While most criminal charges are resolved by negotiated plea agreements, the lawyers of BMAKG have tried dozens of cases to jury verdict. With extensive experience in this area of the law, our attorneys are well equipped to resolve your criminal matter. We have been successful in having charges dismissed in hundreds of cases. If your case doesn’t result in a dismissal, our lawyers are skilled at negotiating satisfactory plea agreements. If you are not satisfied with a plea offer, we are ready to try your case. If arrested, it is imperative that you speak with legal counsel immediately to protect your constitutional rights. Our attorneys stand ready and qualified to defend you in any criminal matter.
