Mounting an appropriate criminal defense if facing felony charges

On Behalf of | Oct 24, 2016 | Criminal Defense

If you have been charged with a crime, your future and freedom are on the line. This is especially true for felony charges, as the penalties are steeper and the repercussions can be long-lasting and serious. The time for a strong criminal defense is now, and any delay in securing legal help can be detrimental to your future. 

In West Virginia, state laws mandate harsher sentences for people who have been convicted of two or more previous felony crimes. This “third strike” law makes it especially important to mount a strong defense if you are facing your third felony charge. While it may be impossible to have the charges against you dropped, you may be able to mitigate some of the potential penalties that you face.

We begin by carefully evaluating your case. We can determine if your rights have been violated in any way, and we can find any holes in the prosecution’s case against you. A strong defense is one that is tailored to your needs and accounts for any unique factors in your case. While we cannot make any guarantees regarding the outcome of your case, we will tenaciously fight for the best possible outcome for you.

Felony charges are serious and should only be handled by a West Virginia lawyer with experience and toughness. We are not daunted by complicated cases, and we can begin to identify appropriate criminal defense strategies as soon as you call. Contact us today for a case evaluation and to secure the support you need during this difficult time.
