Don't Face Your Charges Alone Contact Our Firm to Start Establishing a Successful Defense

Criminal Defense Attorney Serving Lexington, SC

No one ever decides they want to be arrested and to face prosecution. But if this has happened to you it is important that you don’t face your situation alone. Criminal charges can be terrifying and jeopardize your freedom, employment, family, and standing in the community. We assist our clients in preparing a defense

Aggressively Defending Your Legal Rights

We believe that the first step with any defense is to make sure that our client is fully advised as to the nature of their charge, court procedures, and all available defenses. Next, we do not believe that anyone charged with a serious offense should have to rely upon the police investigation. We regularly incorporate our own investigators and experts to help find the facts and evidence to help our client’s case.

At the Law Office of James R. Snell, Jr., LLC, we can help you handle your case in any of the following scenarios:

We begin our criminal cases with a thorough and detailed client interview. We want to know exactly what happened from our client’s perspective, as well as their special concerns that they have. Many of our clients are good people who have found themselves in need of a second chance. Others have been falsely accused and need to clear their name. No matter which scenario applies, we want to do our best to ensure that their rights and interests are protected.

Although every case and client is different, after handling thousands of criminal cases, attorney James Snell is aware of the major issues and challenges that may be present. He has developed specific strategies to incorporate into every case. We want to begin representation with a plan for success, not just wishful thinking. This case include pre-set follow up appointments with our client, conducting a defense investigation, filing legal motions and challenges with the court, taking advantage of court procedures and rules, and use of experts to challenge technical or forensic based evidence.

Although many cases are “routine” to the criminal justice system, they are not routine events for our clients and their families. Even misdemeanor convictions can result in lost employment opportunities. Criminal charges are urgent, and deserve urgent attention. When you contact our office we can frequently offer same-day appointments, and once retained immediately go to work.
