Criminal Law

Criminal lawyers represent either the state or individuals on a wide range of crimes ranging from simple misdemeanor traffic violations to first degree murder. Settings for criminal lawyers include governmental agencies at either the federal, state or local level, or, in the case of non-indigent defense work, for small or solo private practices.
