If you're facing criminal charges, you want an attorney who is a fighter and never backs down. An attorney who knows their way around the courthouse. An attorney who's engaging enough to get sympathy from a jury and aggressive enough to strike fear in the hearts of prosecutors. A criminal defense attorney like me: Jonathan C. McCardle.
The consequences of a guilty verdict can mean steep fines and/or time in jail or prison. No matter what you've been accused of, you deserve strong legal representation. I represent people facing charges such as:
- DUI/BUI offenses
- Driver's license suspension
- Drug charges
- White Collar Crimes
- Sex Crimes
If you've been accused of a crime, I can identify weaknesses in the prosecution's case and make sure that your rights are protected. I fight to reduce charges and get charges dropped whenever possible.
The only thing you should do after an arrest is tell the police that you want to talk to your lawyer. Remember, anything you say can and will be held against you. Even if you consider the charges against you to be minor, it's always better to remain silent until you speak with a lawyer. Once the charges against you are fully understood, that's when we start to consider what is advisable to say to the police, if anything.
The first step in any defense strategy is to listen to what you have to say. Your story helps inform every step of our process. My team makes detailed notes on every aspect of your case from police records to your firsthand account. We then develop an action plan that will carry us through negotiations and if necessary, hearings and arraignments.
Whether you're accused of assault, violating traffic laws or white collar crimes, attorney Jonathan C. McCardle will fight to get you the best possible deal and go to trial if necessary. To set up an initial consultation, call 205-440-6071 or fill out our online form.
