Criminal Defense

If you or your loved one has been accused of committing a crime, it should never be taken lightly.  Criminal convictions, both small and large, can follow a person throughout his or her lifetime.  A minor conviction today could be a barrier to obtaining a dream job in the future.  Moreover, most crimes carry the possibility of jail time.

Citizens of West Virginia have rights under both the state and federal constitution.  These rights include, but are not limited to: the right to remain silent; the right to counsel; and the right against unreasonable searches and seizures.  A lawyer, after investigation of the facts of your case, will be able to determine whether your rights were violated and whether the State has a viable case against you.
