criminal lawThe criminal defense attorneys at Van DeWater & Van DeWater LLP have years of trial experience defending clients in wide variety of criminal matters. Whether representing a client against a DWI (driving while intoxicated) charge, DUI (driving under the influence) charge, felony drug crime, white collar, embezzlement or theft allegations, our criminal defense practice, chaired by a former local prosecutor, is well equipped to zealously defend and protect your interests.
A criminal conviction is a serious matter, leading to a permanent criminal record which can have many life-altering consequences. That’s why you need a criminal defense attorney with the knowledge and expertise to protect you and your interests at the outset. From the moment our criminal defense lawyers are retained, they set to work, reviewing police reports, witnesses’ testimony, forensic and other scientific analysis to hunt for things the prosecution and law enforcement may have overlooked or failed to adequately prove.
If you’re accused of a crime it is vital to have an attorney present before answering any questions or making any statements. The sooner you are represented, the better your chances are to resolve the charges against you. Let our criminal law attorneys guide you through this process. We’ll never forget what matters most: you, your rights and getting you back to your life.
