We do not sugarcoat the truth if the charges are serious, but we also use all our skills and energy to fight for the best possible outcome in every criminal case.

All Misdemeanor and Felony Cases

Every client of the firm works directly with AV-rated* criminal defense lawyer Steven L. Schwartz. We have the knowledge to confidently defend clients against any misdemeanor or felony. Cases we handle commonly include:

Alcohol and traffic crimes: We plea bargain and defend against Driving Under the Influence (DUI) arrests, Operating While Intoxicated (OWI) and drunk and disorderly charges. Learn more about what to expect after a DUI arrest, including information about driver’s license restoration hearings and installation of ignition interlock devices.

Drug crimes: We defend against all manner of misdemeanor and felony drug crimes, from drug possession and medical marijuana charges to drug trafficking.

Crimes against persons: Violent crimes require aggressive advocacy to minimize negative consequences. We handle assault and domestic violence cases, as well as murder, manslaughter and vehicular homicide charges.

Sex crime accusations: Defending clients against sex crime accusations often takes place in the court of public opinion as much as in the criminal courts. Consult with us regarding charges such as criminal sexual conduct, solicitation, or Internet crimes such as possession of child pornography.

Theft and Internet crimes: The amount of goods or money alleged stolen have a major impact on the potential fines and jail time in theft, fraud and embezzlement, and identity theft cases.

In addition: In addition to representing adult defendants, we provide protective representation to juveniles accused of delinquency. We also handle probation violation cases and investigate charges of serious police misconduct.
