Criminal law

If you have been charged with a crime your rights and freedom are on the line. You are likely facing substantial fines and jail time. This is not the time to think you are able to walk in and “do it yourself.”  Don’t face the prosecutor and government without a plan for your defense. You need experienced and competent representation to avoid the implications of your charges.

Our legal system is fraught with complexities and you can’t expect to know the ins and outs of the criminal justice system. You need an attorney experienced in the law and procedure of our system.

At Stevens & Gailey you will retain dedicated and knowledgeable legal counsel ready

to fight for your rights. If you have been charged with a crime you need to act now. Criminal acts require specific actions and if the evidence does not support the mandatory elements, you can’t be convicted. It is essential that you act promptly to preserve evidence which may exonerate your charges. Don’t stand by and let your rights be washed away, don’t simply enter a plea because the prosecution says it is the best you will do. Call Stevens & Gailey today for your FREE consultation.
