Defense For Any Criminal Charge

Thanks to decades of experience in criminal law, the firm’s three attorneys are ready to defend you against any charge you face − misdemeanors, felonies, or federal crimes − regardless of the complexity, including the following:

  • Driving under the influence
  • Commercial driver’s license issues
  • Assault and battery
  • Weapons charges
  • Theft, burglary, and other property crimes
  • Stalking
  • Misappropriation of assets
  • Fraud
  • Manslaughter and murder
  • Arson

Offering More Than Just A Defense

While building defense strategies is obviously the largest part of our attorneys’ jobs, alleviating concerns is also important. The lawyers understand that their clients worry about losing their freedoms, and they worry about going to jail. They understand that accused individuals worry about their futures and the effects criminal convictions can have on employment opportunities. They also know that the burdens are not only on their clients but also on their families.

Because they understand the big picture when it comes to criminal charges, they are honest with their clients, and they set expectations based on reality instead of hopes. They believe great facts make great attorneys, and they will give you all the facts.

What To Expect From Your First Meeting

During your first meeting with one of the attorneys, your lawyer will spend much of his time listening, because he needs to hear your side of the story. Your lawyer will also examine the information you have concerning your arrest and the circumstances that led to your arrest.

Once your attorney has completed a preliminary review, he can explain his initial opinion of your situation. He will outline your legal options and tell you what to expect from the legal process. If you decide to retain the law firm of Michael D. Ettinger & Associates, the real work begins immediately after your first consultation, as the firm’s legal team begins gathering evidence, issuing subpoenas, and planning for your defense.
