Criminal Defense

Have You Been Charged with a Crime?

Have You Been Charged with a Crime?

If you've been accused of a crime and face the possibility of going to jail, you already understand the seriousness of your situation.

When faced with a grim criminal charge, you need an attorney who will treat your case with equal severityan attorney that understands what is at stake for you and your family.

Chris Day is an experienced criminal defense attorney who will treat your case with the seriousness it deserves. Regardless of the charges files against you, Mr. Day has the legal knowledge to see that the case ends in the most favorable manner.

Do I need an attorney?

Whether you hire us or another experienced firm, you don't want to just show up at court by yourself and hope the District Attorney will make you a good offer. Even if you are guilty there are areas your attorney will look into:

Are the charges being brought against you correct?

For example, the DA may charge you with a felony when you only committed a misdemeanor. That makes a huge difference in the long run.

Did the arresting officer followed proper procedures when arresting you?

Illegally obtained evidence is not admissible against you. You need an experienced attorney to review the offense reports, witness statements, and other State's evidence to evaluate how strong the State's case is against you.

Will you get my charges dismissed?

We can't guarantee you a certain result, or that you'll be acquitted, or that we'll get your charges dismissed. DON'T TRUST ANY ATTORNEY THAT MAKES SUCH PROMISES!!!

What is your goal in representing me?

Our goal is to work with your best interests in mind and to have your charge reduced to the minimal sentencing available. And if your case does go to court, we will work to provide you with the best defense the law allows. We won't advise you to take a plea unless it's in your best interest. We will never advise you to plead guilty unless you are truly guilty.
