Criminal Defense

In the average life, being accused of a crime is an earth shaking event.  All the resources of the state are arrayed against you, and sometimes it feels as if the system has turned upside down and you must "prove your innocence."

An Aggressive Defense

At Ferguson Law Associates, we take an aggressive stance in our approach to criminal defense.  We work with you to make sure you understand your rights and that those rights are vigorously defended.

We want the best possible outcome for you:

  • The possible withdrawal or dismissal of charges.
  • Reduction of charges.
  • A judgment of not guilty (acquittal).
  • Negotiating to reduce sentencing.
  • Alternatives to imprisonment, including home detention and work release.
  • The expungement of a criminal record.

We'll be at your side during bail hearings and trial, through every bond and detention hearing to probation hearings and appeals.  We'll earn your confidence with every step we take in your defense.  Contact Ferguson Law Associates today for a consultation on matters of criminal law.
