Protecting Your Rights.

A Strategic Defense Is A Successful Defense

You have been accused. Your instinct is to fight back. That makes sense, considering how much is at stake. Your future may be on the line. However, you must not simply charge into battle. Care must be taken before moving forward. A strategy must be developed.

You need an attorney on your side who can review your case thoroughly, learn about your side of the story, examine the evidence against you and build a criminal defense strategy that makes sense based on the circumstances. At Atwell Law, LLC, I handle every case personally. That means I can devote the necessary time to each one, reviewing it carefully before using my 15-plus years of experience to build the right strategy.
