    Do I Need a Criminal Defense Attorney?

    clarendon criminal defenseA criminal defense attorney’s main function is to ensure that their client’s rights are upheld, no matter what the offense is. You need an attorney who has represented clients in a wide variety of cases and who knows how to work through the many details involved in preparing a criminal defense case. Beginning with the first consultation, Mitchell S. Sexner & Associates LLC vigorously represents clients on cases that include the following types of charges:

    • Theft: Our attorneys understand the differences between the many types of theft, from shoplifting to armed residential burglary. This knowledge helps to define the level of the offense and may help to lessen the severity of the eventual penalty.
    • Crimes of a Sexual Nature: Sex crimes are very serious and can sometimes result in extended sentences. Vigorous prosecution is the norm for violent sex crimes such as sexual assault, rape, and abuse, especially of an underage person. These types of charges require the legal services of an experienced defense attorney who will aggressively handle your case.
    • Drug-Related Offenses: The seriousness of drug offenses depends on the type of controlled substance or substances relevant to the case, as well as the quantity of the drug or drugs present at the arrest. The defendant’s intent is also of great importance. These range from drug possession to delivery to distribution to trafficking. The sentences in these cases vary widely depending on these factors. You need a lawyer who is knowledgeable regarding these differences to obtain the best outcome for you.
    • Assault and Battery Cases: These two crimes are different by definition and, therefore, can incur various outcomes for the defendant. Assault is a victim’s reasonable belief that the defendant was going to, or intended to, harm them. Battery involves actual physical contact that has occurred. A knowledgeable attorney can sometimes use self-defense or the fact that the other party was not injured to guide the direction and outcome of the case.

    These include the general categories of cases that our firm regularly contends with. There is an extensive list of other charges that our attorneys handle on a regular basis for people just like you.
