Everyone has heard that if you have an issue you have to know how to problem solve. This is true even in the work of a criminal defense attorney. Sometimes cases are not resolved by case law or statutes. Sometimes the facts are not such that they lend to resolving a problem. What is always the common denominator is the person handling the problem. You cannot stick your head in the sand and hope an issue will just disappear. That doesn't mean you go full steam ahead trying to force the issue either. Every case has it's own challenges that must be overcome. When a challenge rises for me when I am representing someone charged with a DUI, violation of probation, marijuana or methamphetamine charge I rely on my 20 years of experience to find a path where others may not. Sometimes just being nice to the Judge, prosecutor or victim of a crime can give you a little push to see some light in resolving the problem. If you or someone you know has violated probation, got arrested for a battery or drug charge get up with me immediately. Even if you believe the facts and/or the law does not support a positive position I will be happy to review everything and solve a problem that at first appeared to be unsolvable.
