Criminal Defense

Whenever a person has contact with law enforcement it can potentially lead to an arrest based on an allegation that a crime was committed. As a defense attorney for the past 30 years, I provide compassionate and comprehensive representation.

When I am hired to represent someone accused of a crime, it is important that the client is has someone by his/her side to provide immediate caring and zealous representation. This means that no matter how serious the allegation(s) are that the client and the client's family knows and realizes that I am diligently and effectively helping that person. The goal is and always will be to have the client exonerated of the allegations brought against him/her by law enforcement. On the other hand, if a client acknowledges that a mistake was made and that he/she is remorseful for their actions, the focus shifts and my responsibility becomes trying to obtain the best possible result in court for the client. In sum, no two clients are the same nor is each case identical to the next. Consequently, a client should have a lawyer who is empathetic and extends himself to help by honorably and effectively advocating for the client's best interests. At the Law Offices of Scott A. Wales, LLC, I, Scott A. Wales , promise to do my best to defend my clients with honor and integrity. This is not a slogan. Rather, this is a commitment to achieving justice and having compassion for the client who has honorably selected me as his/her counsel over any attorney. This is a responsibility that I embrace and maintain with each and every client. -Scott A. Wales 414-271-7670
