Madison County Criminal Defense Lawyer

Combatting Criminal Charges

Misdemeanor and felony charges in Indiana range from domestic battery to homicide, from drug crimes to weapons charges. Regardless of the level, any criminal allegation is serious. The penalties are long-lasting and can affect your freedom, relationships, finances, career, and future. They can also leave you with a social stigma that others may have trouble looking past, making judgments about your character and qualifications for certain opportunities. To seek to avoid or minimize these life-altering consequences, you must fight your charge. But taking on your case alone could be risky, as the nuances of criminal law make navigating these matters challenging. A more effective course of action would be to hire a lawyer to assist through every stage of your case.
