PRE-ARREST AND CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS

If you know you are the subject of an investigation, seek the advice and guidance of a skilled and experienced criminal defense attorney. Speak to a lawyer before you interact with law enforcement. There is no reason to wait until you are contacted by the police to call an attorney. Experienced, early intervention and protection of your rights by a qualified lawyer can be of great benefit to your defense. Often it can lead to lesser charges being filed, and sometimes dismissal of charges altogether, and has for many of our clients over the years. Speak to our criminal defense team before you talk to anyone else.

If you have already been charged with a crime, we are here to help - that's our job. We are aggressive advocates for people accused of crimes. From investigation to negotiation and through trial, we work with you every step of the way to ensure your rights are protected, and that you have every opportunity to realize the best possible outcome for your unique circumstance.

At DeMent Askew Johnson & Marshall, we understand that any criminal charge is a serious matter that is not limited to just the matter at hand. We skillfully negotiate not only for reduction and dismissal of your charges, but in the best interest of the ultimate outcome on your behalf. Our clients' futures are important to us.
