Regardless of whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, it is frightening to find oneself facing a criminal charge in the State of Oklahoma. Her legions of police officers, detectives, investigators, laboratory scientists, medical workers, social workers and district attorneys have at their disposal every resource that the State budget can provide. They will focus those resources to one end: the conviction of the citizen charged with a crime.
Conviction, of even minor offenses can subject citizens to numerous penalties, both criminal, such as fines and jail time, as well as civil such as the loss of driving privileges or the right to possess a firearm. When you find yourself at the sharp end of the spear it can seem overwhelming. However, the State's power is not unlimited, despite how it seems when it's bearing down upon you. But these limitations and your constitutional rights must be guarded with vigilance. And that is why I work as an Oklahoma Criminal Defense Attorney, to protect the rights of the accused citizen and thereby to protect the rights of us all.
My representation of clients facing criminal charges in Oklahoma begins with the immediate filing of a Motion for Discovery and Brief in Support to compel the State to produce all relevant evidence for my review to determine any and all defenses available. I then provide my client with copies of the police reports, lab reports, etc. along with my written analysis of the evidence and the law. After ensuring that any and all questions are answered, the client is then able to make informed decisions about how to proceed. I then pursue a resolution as directed by the client, whether that be a jury trial, a bench trial, administrative hearing or negotiation with the State. Throughout the entire process you will find me to be non-judgmental, respectful and a fierce advocate of your interests
I have successfully tried cases in municipal court, administrative court and district court before both judge and jury. Please call 918-844-4899 for a free consultation.
