The criminal defense section of Otten and Joyce, LLP is comprised primarily of former prosecutors. Our attorneys have years of experience handling misdemeanor and felony criminal cases. We provide aggressive, personalized legal representation in an area of law where experience and vigorous defense can often make the difference between going to jail and sleeping in your own bed.
Our firm represents individuals and business charged with criminal offenses, including Driving Under the Influence (DUI), drug crimes, including marijuana crimes, assault, battery, domestic violence, theft, homicide, state and federal crimes, gun and weapons charges, fraud, white collar crimes, and environmental crimes.
If you or someone you know suspects that you are under investigation or have already been arrested, consult with an attorney immediately. An experienced attorney can investigate the circumstances surrounding an investigation or arrest while the facts and evidence are fresh and present a different side of the story to a prosecuting agency in attempt to avoid charges from being filed.
Our attorneys often are called into a case where a matter can be prosecuted as an administrative action (such as OSHA) where fines are typically issued or criminally where people can be incarcerated. We do everything ethically possible to avoid a prosecution and minimize fines imposed.
Our attorneys have handled hundreds of criminal cases throughout the state. We provide the highest quality representation available. If you have been arrested for a criminal offense the most important decision you will make is how you construct your defense team. A criminal conviction is a serious matter that can impact a person for the rest of his or her life and should be handled by a qualified criminal defense team.
