At Scott Law Firm, we pride ourselves on providing experience and tenacity when defending your rights. For those who are charged with criminal offenses, our firm strives to protect their rights with all the tools we have available. When dealing with a criminal offense, whether the situation involves speeding, a traffic ticket, or a more-serious situation, you may be facing severe penalties. We handle minor misdemeanors to serious felony offenses, such as DWIs and drug-related cases. All defendants face the threat of crippling fines and a long imprisonment sentence, and therefore, it is vital to get legal assistance as soon as possible. At Scott Law Firm, we can help you in all of the following types of cases:
Violence within the home or between two people in an intimate relationship is a very serious crime, but it is often difficult to defend because there are rarely witnesses to the event. Abuse can be of a physical, sexual, emotional, or even financial nature.
Drug crimes include drug possession, trafficking, distribution, and manufacturing. Each crime has its own penalties and circumstances but they all involve illegal controlled substances such as marijuana, ecstasy, cocaine, and heroin.
Those who choose to drink and drive are committing a serious crime that is called driving under the influence (DUI). Doing so can cause serious injuries to others on the road, and therefore, this crime is heavily penalized.
Expungement is the process of sealing prior criminal convictions. When this takes place, the records are unavailable through state or federal repositories. This option is not available to everyone, but is a profitable civil action that can take place with the help of a criminal defense attorney.
Those who are considered minors and commit a serious crime are called juvenile offenders. Juvenile crimes are typically punished with probation, community service, fines, and counseling rather than jail or prison. There are juvenile detention centers, or juvenile halls, where the court may decide to place the offender.
Parole & Probation Violation
Probation violations take place when an individual does not comply with probation terms. If the terms of probation are not specifically and accurately followed, the individual can have his or her probation revoked and will then be required to serve the original sentence in jail or prison.
Those who are charged with a sex crime can face harsh repercussions, and without the help of a criminal defense attorney, they can find themselves in dire circumstances. Sex crimes include rape, lewd conduct, child pornography, and prostitution.
White Collar Crimes
White collar crimes are a variety of offenses that occur in a business or corporate environment. They can include identity theft, fraud, bribery, counterfeiting, money laundering, and many others. A criminal defense lawyer can work to protect your rights in these situations.
