Criminal Defense


If you have been accused of a crime, you probably have questions about the next steps you should take. You may be confused about the consequences that you could be facing. You may be feeling pressured by the authorities to take actions you don’t fully understand. In this atmosphere of difficulty and doubt, it is important that you have someone on your side who can help you make the right decisions.

The Criminal Defense Attorneys At Haskell & Dyer


Whether you are facing a felony charge or traffic offense, our attorneys will vigorously defend you.

At Haskell & Dyer, we fight aggressively to protect your rights and interests. We examine every element of the government’s case against you, challenging evidence and seeking out inconsistencies in opposing testimony. Before you can be convicted, the government needs to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt – if it cannot meet this standard, we will take the steps necessary to have the case dismissed.

Sometimes, the role of the criminal defense lawyer is not to prove his or her client’s innocence, but to minimize the negative effects that a conviction will have on the client’s life. If we negotiate a plea bargain, our attorneys will do everything possible to protect your rights and promote your interests. Often, we can push for an alternate or reduced sentence that will avoid the most serious consequences.
