After an arrest for a serious property crime, a drug offense or DWI, time is of the essence. No matter how serious the charges, you have the right to dedicated, protective representation.
If you are pulled over, be polite. Give the officer your name, address, and telephone number. If you are arrested on felony charges, continue to be polite and do not resist.
No matter what happens, ask to speak to an attorney at Miller & Illikainen. We understand that life happens 24/7 and make it a point to answer after-hours calls as quickly as possible. Our attorneys can also arrange meeting times around your schedule.
Our attorneys believe that you are innocent of felony charges unless proven guilty.
Focused, Aggressive Criminal Defense
When we accept your case, we will take the time needed to research and investigate your arrest and the charges against you. One of our criminal defense lawyers is a former state prosecutor, so we know how to anticipate prosecutorial moves and act quickly to counter them in order to reduce misdemeanor or felony charges or have them dropped. If it is in your best interest to go to trial, we will defend your rights aggressively in court.
We provide criminal defense in a wide variety of criminal cases such as:
- DWI/DUI whether an initial or repeat offense
- Theft, robbery or burglary
- Drug offenses from possession to sale or trafficking
- Assault and battery
- Parole and probation violations
We can also capably represent you in connected criminal law matters, including civil forfeiture and search and seizure violations.
A strong criminal defense is crucial because the consequences can be stiff. If you are convicted of a felony, you could face heavy fines and possible jail time. You could also lose your eligibility for a professional license, the right to vote and the right to bear arms, even for hunting.
