An Experienced Criminal Defense and DUI/OWI Lawyer Serving the South Bend Area

Being charged with a crime or an OWI can be a life changing experience for most people, and definitely not in a good way!  You need an experienced attorney that will work to make sure your rights are protected and that will, most importantly, help you understand the process in which you are going.  There are many aspects to a criminal case that need to be looked at because they can have a lasting impact on your life.  For instance, if you are charged with an OWI, what is the probable cause affidavit?  Will I be able to drive to and from work?  How will this case impact my future driving record?  Did the police even have the right to stop me in the first place?

What about a felony case?  The questions only become more important.  You need to review your case with an experienced attorney to help you determine if the arrest was valid, whether any statements you made be used against you or excluded from a trial, are there any defenses that need to be discussed (alibi or self-defense), and what the possible outcomes could be based on the facts of your individual case.

These are all very reasonable questions and you should feel comfortable with the answers that you will receive from your criminal defense attorney.  You should know all of the potential outcomes you are facing in your criminal or OWI case.  I can help you understand your options.
