Criminal Defense Litigation

Aggressive legal representation

Criminal charges or a pending law enforcement investigation can turn an individual’s life upside down, especially if they retain an inexperienced criminal defense attorney who is unable to effectively see a case through trial. Inadequate representation can result in catastrophic consequences which can destroy an individual’s career, their relationships, and their financial capabilities.

Former prosecution experience, trial experience, appellate experience in criminal cases can sometimes make all the difference in the field of criminal defense. The criminal defense attorneys at the Law Offices of Philip Russell, LLC possess all three.

At the Law Offices of Philip Russell, LLC, our criminal defense attorneys pride themselves on their work and aim to achieve the best possible result on behalf of each and every client. Whether you have been arrested for a simple drug possession charge, or if you are a suspect in a murder case, we know what it takes to properly defend you and our criminal defense attorneys will see you through the most difficult of situations.

About five per cent of criminal arrests result in criminal trials. A criminal defense law firm that has extensive ongoing experience in trying cases to juries (and winning) can create significant advantages, even in the initial stages of a criminal investigation. Your criminal defense team’s readiness and ability to take a case to a jury will be an advantage through the investigation or plea negotiation of any criminal matter.
