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 ahas someone by his/her side to provide immediate and effective representation that is with compassion. This means that no matter how serious the allegation(s) are that the client is facing, the client and his/her family understands right away that I am diligent and effective in helping that person.

The goal is and always will be to have the client exonerated of the allegations brought 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 is to obtain the best possible result 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 make himself available 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 and preserve their 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 other attorney. This is a responsibility that I embrace and pursue with each and every client.
