Two Types of Criminal Defense Cases
There are two forms of criminal defense cases that we have become accustomed to handling. The first involves individuals who we find have been wrongfully accused of a crime based on false evidence or testimony. Other times, the police can make a mistake or wrongfully identify you. If this is the case, we can provide criminal defense to the utmost extent to help you obtain freedom and protection of your rights. The second type of case our lawyers take on are those in which the individual is truly found guilty but is in need of a second chance. Sometimes, a
domestic violence or
property crime was committed, but the individual is simply a good person found in a bad situation. Often, these mistakes are caused by being influenced by or surrounding yourself with the wrong crowd, or the use of drugs or alcohol. We can use our experience as
members of the South Carolina Association for Justice and the American Association for Justice to help you obtain the justice you require.

violent crimes, we can sit down and openly listen to your situation and be the defense you need when you are facing penalties you may not deserve.
