I Can Defend Your Rights In Any Court At Any Time

At my office, I am committed to a hands-on approach to criminal defense. I am always working hard on their behalf to fight for my client to be treated fairly by the criminal justice system, and to minimize the penalty that they may be facing.

My office is always open for clients to reach me and ask for my help because your life does not close at 5 PM, and my doors should not either. Emergencies happen at all hours, so I am capable of responding to these emergencies when they happen.

Getting Your Life Back On Track Through Defense And Expungement

I primarily assist in criminal defense, helping clients with cases ranging from minor traffic violations all the way to murder charges. However, I am also committed to helping clients seek expungements for past convictions as well.

Criminal convictions can lead to many extra-judicial punishments, such as lost career opportunities, difficulty obtaining housing or government benefits, and loss of relationships. Getting your records cleaned can give you the fresh start you need to move on with your life, and I am dedicated to helping my clients achieve that.

“You recently represented my son in a case that was resolved in December.

Your professional manner, along with your caring personality, made our journey down that dark road much brighter. We are very grateful for your help in bringing about a positive outcome…Thank you Mr. Powers, for all you have done. We hope you have a wonderful Christmas. You are in our thoughts and prayers.”

“I don’t really know how to show enough gratitude for all you have done. It’s been a long few months battling the courts and I am so grateful that I can finally put all of this behind me. Without your representation, I would be behind bars and have no way to provide for my family. Thank you for representing me and for helping me to get my life back. If anyone I know gets into trouble, I will definitely recommend they give you a call. Thanks for all of your hard work.”
