Non-Violent Criminal Defenses

Fighting for Your Legal Rights & Protecting Your Divorce Case

Going through a divorce is a terrible burden regardless of the circumstances. Everyone handles the experience differently, with reactions ranging from elation to depression. If you are having a difficult divorce, it may lead you to making decisions that would have otherwise been very out of character. If one of these decisions has led to an arrest and criminal charges, we can help. 

In addition to providing effective representation throughout your divorce, we will also be there to help you with any type of non-violent criminal charge. Working with one law firm for both your divorce and any criminal charges will help ensure all factors are considered throughout both cases to help get you the best possible results.

Common Criminal Charges

It is not uncommon for someone going through a divorce, or recently emerging from a divorce, to make mistakes that can cause legal problems. As the experts say, a divorce is going to impact every aspect of your life, including the types of decisions you make. We have helped clients with a wide-range of different criminal charges including: 

  • DWI – Driving while under the influence of alcohol or other controlled substances is extremely common for those going through a divorce. While it should absolutely be avoided, we can provide you a strong defense if you are arrested. 
  • Possession of Controlled Substances – Whether you try drugs as a new experience after a divorce or as a way to cope with the challenges, it can get you in a lot of trouble. We’ll help fight for your rights and ensure that this one mistake doesn’t ruin your life for years to come. 
  • Destruction of Property – While it is never excusable, some people do things like slashing tires, breaking windows, or destroying other property of their ex. If you have been arrested for this type of activity, we’ll fight to protect your legal interests.

Effective Defense Strategies

No matter what type of non-violent criminal charge you are facing, our team will be at your side throughout the process. We have worked with area courts and can negotiate with a judge or prosecutor to show that this was just a one-time mistake caused by the emotional distress of a divorce. In many situations, we can get your case dropped entirely or at least reduced to a misdemeanor charge so it won’t cause you long-term legal problems.
