Criminal and Municipal Court Defense

Criminal Defense

If you are currently under an investigation or have been arrested for committing a crime, it is possible that your rights, future and freedoms are on the line. What you do next and the legal representation that you secure, may make all of the difference in the outcome of your case.

If you have been accused of a crime, you need our legal guidance. One size does not fit all when it comes to the defense of criminal charges. Depending on the facts of your case, you may need to go to trial to defend yourself. However, there are times when people need a lawyer who can minimize their exposure to the system by negotiating a plea bargain. Our firm can explore your options and work within the court system to seek favorable results on your behalf. We can offer you the supportive guidance, solutions and information that you need to make the right choice about your case.

If convicted, some of the penalties that you may face for your criminal offense include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Criminal record

  • Imprisonment

  • Heavy fines

  • Loss of rights and freedoms

At Zehner & Daly, our lawyers are skilled at evaluating evidence, building an effective defense, and fighting to reduce your charges. From start to finish, we will treat you with respect and help you navigate through the complexities of the legal system. Regardless of whether your offense is a felony or lesser charge, you can be confident that we will give you a straightforward assessment of your case and your options.
