Specialized Areas of Criminal Law Practice:
Assault- Most assault charges will involve an attack physically on another person. The attack can be as simple as a perceived threat to a person that violence will be used against them. An assault can involve physical battery or the use of weapons. Domestic assault is a charge which involves an altercation between members of the same family or household. Sexual assault is an offense caused when an individual knowingly forces another to engage in a sexual act against their will.
Computer Crimes- Computer crimes or cybercrimes involve the unauthorized use of a computer, computer network or other electronic device for personal gain. This can include the illegal transfer of funds or manipulation of data. Computer crimes also include cyber stalking, the exchange of illegal content such as child pornography or phishing scams.
Drug Crimes- Drug crimes are comprised of the manufacture, sale, possession or useage of illegal or controlled substances including cocaine, heroin, marijuana, methamphetamines and prescription drugs such as oxycodone, vicodine and xanax. Drug crimes can have serious implications, especially for a repeat offender or if additional criminal charges are also pending.
DUI / DWI- Driving Under the Influence (DUI) or Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) involve the operation of a vehicle while intoxicated or under the influence of alcohol or drugs (including physician provided prescriptions). DUI or DWI charges can range from a misdemeanor level up to a felony offense. Prior charges also increase the complexity of these cases and will need to be carefully reviewed.
Homicide- Homicide involves a deliberate or unlawful intent to murder an individual(s). Charges can include felony murder, non-criminal homicide, vehicular homicide, manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter. These are some of the most frequent types of homicide charges. The circumstances and intent that lead to the homicide charges need to be closely reviewed by an attorney in an effort to ensure the proper charges are being levied and that the rights of the accused are protected.
Robbery- Robbery is defined as the action of the unauthorized removal of property in the presence of an individual. Robbery is a felony offense and requires that the intent and completed action be thoroughly evaluated to ensure the right level of charges are being levied.
