Protecting clients for more than 31 years
Mr. Hunt represents clients in the following criminal matters:
Felonies
If you have been charged with a felony, it is essential that you retain an experienced criminal defense attorney to zealously defend you in court. Felonies are the most serious crimes such as murder, rape, armed robbery, credit card fraud and burglary. Felony convictions also have the most serious consequences. A person convicted of a felony is sentenced to serve at least one year in a state or federal prison, and may be committed for life. In addition, convicted felons are stripped of many of the rights guaranteed to American citizens, including the right to vote, the right to travel out of the country and the right to own a gun. Convicted felons also have to disclose their crimes on job applications and can be deported if they are not American citizens.

How your felony charge is defended can make the difference between life and death for you. Hunt Law Group, S.C. has more than 31 years of experience handling felony charges, and is committed to attaining the best possible outcome for you.

Misdemeanors
Misdemeanors are crimes such as disorderly conduct, simple assault, shoplifting and trespassing that are punishable by less than a year in prison. Although misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, having a misdemeanor conviction on your criminal record can limit your employment options and can result in a jail sentence. Ensure that you receive a fair trial by letting Hunt Law Group, S.C. represent you.

Drug crimes
Charges of trafficking, distributing or possession of illegal substances or drug paraphernalia can result in heavy fines and extended time in jail. You can rely on Mr. Hunt's knowledge of drug crimes and his history of successful results to help eliminate or minimize the charges against you.

Sexual offenses
Rape and sexual assault cases are often among the hardest for defendants to win. Hunt Law Group, S.C. has the experience and skills to successfully litigate these cases. Contact the firm today.

Sealing and expungement of records
A criminal record can prevent you from pursuing higher education, securing your dream job, or traveling abroad. Mr. Hunt can help you eliminate past criminal charges from your record, or get those records sealed so that you can move on with your life.
