What you need to know right now:

You have rights: No matter the situation, you have rights guaranteed under the Constitution. These include the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney. Before you answer any questions or make a statement, contact us and we will make sure that your rights are respected.

Working with a lawyer: It is a common misconception, encouraged by crime TV shows, that requesting a lawyer makes you look guilty—this is not true! You have a right to legal representation. Lawyers not only work to protect your rights but also help you file court forms, meet deadlines, and navigate the criminal justice system.

Criminal Law Process

You can count on our experienced trial lawyers to be with you every step of the way to create a strategic, aggressive, and dynamic defense aimed at achieving the best possible results for your situation. From having charges dropped, to negotiating plea deals, or seeing a case through trial and appeals—we are with you until the end.

Facing Criminal Charges

Whether you find yourself in the back of a cop car or being asked to come in for questions, remember you have a right to remain silent and to ask for legal representation. As your criminal defense attorney, we will immediately begin advocating on your behalf, ensuring your rights are respected as well as helping you to navigate the bail process and the arraignment hearing.

At the arraignment, you will be informed of the criminal charges that were filed against you, at which point we can immediately begin working on your defense strategy. Having an advocate you trust with you through this process will make it immeasurably less overwhelming.

Trial and Appeals

The burden of proof falls on the prosecution. At Olin Lippiello LLP we pride ourselves in our ability to anticipate every possible approach the prosecution may take. Whenever possible we will move to have a case dismissed due to insufficient evidence, overreaching, or because your constitutional rights were violated. As your criminal defense attorney, we will question the prosecution at every point. If you are convicted, we’ll work with you to determine your case’s merits for an appeal, and we’d work quickly to prepare a new defense.

Post-Conviction

The impact of a criminal conviction can be felt long after you’ve completed any court-mandated sentence. Background searches and even a quick Internet search can make it hard to move forward with your life. For certain convictions it is possible to eventually have your record expunged. Give us a call today so we can figure out if your situation might qualify.
