What we at Jones Brown PLLC. call criminal law broadly refers to federal and state laws that make certain behavior illegal and punishable by imprisonment and/or fines. Our legal system is largely comprised of two different types of cases: civil and criminal. Civil cases are disputes between people regarding the legal duties and responsibilities they owe each other. Criminal cases, meanwhile, are charges pursued by prosecutors for violations of criminal statutes.
Being arrested and/or charged with a crime is serious, and the need to defend yourself should not be delayed or taken lightly.
Regardless of whether the charge is an outstanding warrant, or if you’ve already been taken into custody, we urge you to contact an experienced attorney immediately! Our attorneys represent individuals, corporations, and institutional clients through plea negotiations, trials, and appeals in state courts and throughout all federal courts nationwide.
The benefits of having an attorney are innumerable, regardless of whether you are a first time offender or a repeat offender. Our skilled attorneys know how the legal systems operate and understand the essential elements of the law. This valuable knowledge could make the difference between conviction and the dismissal of your case.
The attorneys at Jones Brown understand that their task is to first remind everyone involved –the prosecutor, judge, and any witnesses or jurors – that you are innocent until proven guilty and are defending yourself. Regardless of how you ended up charged with breaking a law, you deserve a fair shot in the courtroom.
