Fighting the Charges

Being arrested for a crime does not make you a criminal. While law enforcement and prosecutors may go out of their way to make you feel hopeless, you have an advocate. You should avoid making any statements to police without our team there representing you. Doing so could cause irreparable harm to your case.

With us on your side, you can:

  • Ensure your rights are protected throughout the entirety of your criminal proceedings
  • Explore alternative sentencing options like treatment programs and restricted licenses
  • Avoid making any incriminating statements to law enforcement

Handling your criminal case alone is never a good idea. The Law Office of Keith R. Murphy can help you protect your driving privileges.

Schedule Your Free Consultation

The moment you are arrested, your rights are on the line. Prosecutors will begin building a case to ensure you are convicted and have to suffer criminal penalties. With the right legal strategy, you can avoid suffering worse consequences than necessary. In some cases, our reviews of the evidence have led to our clients’ charges being reduced or even dropped. The sooner you call our firm, the better our chances will be of obtaining a favorable outcome on your behalf.
