Criminal Law

Notwithstanding a person’s best intentions, the legal problem at hand may not be civil (like family law, bankruptcy, or a car accident), but a criminal charge.

Unfortunately, a misdemeanor or felony charge (particularly involving an automobile) may arise when least expected. Occasionally, the criminal defendant is overcharged, or if charged correctly, the person faces an unduly punitive sentence. Occasionally, the person is plainly innocent.

Whatever the circumstances, since his public defender days, Rich has represented folks charged with crimes ranging from a misdemeanor to capital murder (in fact, five times for the latter category). When someone is not compelled to use the local public defender’s office, he or she may welcome Rich’s involvement.
