Criminal Defense
Regardless of the type of crime, our law firm will take the time to learn all about you and the criminal charges you face during the initial consultation.
When you are charged with a crime, society tends to view you in a negative light, regardless of the outcome of the case. Our criminal defense firm, however, bases its mission on the ideal that each accused person is innocent until proven guilty. With this principle serving as the foundation of our work, our attorneys work tirelessly to defend clients charged with all criminal matters ranging from minor misdemeanors relating to drug possession to felony charges for homicide.

Regardless of the charges against you, we will work aggressively to defend you in a court of law. We routinely represent clients charged with the following crimes:

Violent Crimes
Sex Offenses
Drug Crimes
Sex Offenses

Sex crimes are among the most serious criminal offenses and can often result in lengthy jail sentences. In addition to prison time, sex crime convictions carry a social stigma which is often impossible to erase even after you have served your time. If you have been arrested for a sex-related offense, it is essential that you contact a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney right away. Our law firm has experience defending clients charged with a variety of sex-offenses including, but not limited to, indecent exposure, prostitution, lewd acts in a public place, possession of child pornography, sexual battery, rape and statutory rape. Our skilled sex crime attorneys will work to ensure your rights are protected and to help maintain your privacy in order to protect you and your loved ones.

Drug Crimes
Being charged with possession or distribution of drugs can often result in harsh penalties. In certain jurisdictions, even the most minor charge of simple possession may be punishable by a jail sentence or probation. If you've been charged with a drug crime, you should seek legal counsel immediately. Our attorneys will take the time to learn your case inside and out and to devise an aggressive defense strategy.

We will investigate the process by which the evidence was obtained for each charge. In many cases, drugs are found by law enforcement during an illegal search. In these instances, the evidence obtained may not be used against you in a court of law, leading the prosecution to drop the charges. If the evidence in your case was obtained legally, our drug defense lawyers can often negotiate with the prosecution and find alternatives to jail time which may include deferred adjudication or probation.

Violent Crimes
If you have been arrested for a violent crime, you should contact an attorney immediately. Crimes which are considered violent in nature include, but are not limited to, assault, battery, homicide, illegal weapon possession, terroristic threats, domestic violence, kidnapping and carjacking.

Our skilled criminal defense counsel is available to meet with you upon your arrest. We can explore your options and in certain cases, reduce the severity of the charges against you. To ensure that no self-incriminating statements are made, we will communicate directly with law enforcement on your behalf and will guide you on the best course of action to take to protect your rights.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

At Malia Law we do things differently than most law firms. We put our clients first. We look for long term relationships with our clients. We look to become more than just our client's legal advisor. That's why we say: When you become our client we become your trusted advisor.

We charge only flat/set or percentage based fees. That way you know that we are working for your interests and not running up your bill. When we advise you of a plan of action, you can feel comfortable that our advice is based on your best interests, not our financial interests.

If your legal matter is outside our expertise we will refer you to the right attorney to help you and not accept a referral fee. You can be sure that, when we refer you to an outside attorney, we are looking out for your best interests and not our financial interests.

We return your phone calls. Not only do we promise to return your phone call within 2 business days, we guarantee it. If your call is not returned within 2 business days we will pay you.

We provide our clients with the opportunity to enroll in our client services retainer program. This program provides our clients with priority attention, reduced fees and an annual landlord/small business protection review for a reasonable monthly fee.

When maintain a network of experienced attorneys, professionals and tradesmen to whom we can refer our clients. We know these attorneys, professionals and tradesmen and have dealt with them in the past. When you need help and we cannot help, we know who can.
