Sex Offenses

The penalties associated with sex offenses in State and Federal court have increased dramatically over the past decade. If you have been accused of production and possession of child pornography, sexual assaults or rapes, prostitution, solicitation or similar offenses—you need an experienced advocate on your side.

Generally this is a new and unfamiliar territory for someone being accused. The police investigate these allegations more frequently. They know what to do and how to do it. It is vital the individual knows their rights and takes advantage of them.

Our experienced criminal defense attorneys understand the severity of a sex crime and the impact it may have on one’s life.

Conviction of a sex crime has the potential result of substantial prison time, lifetime offender registration, public humiliation, professional marginalization, restrictions on locations in which to live, and social ostracism. We treat all of our clients and their cases with respect and professionalism as we know this is a difficult situation.

We mount a thorough defense by gaining a complete understanding of the client and witnesses involved and retain experienced investigators to locate and interview witnesses and determine the accuser’s motivations.

The sooner you have an advocate on your side, the better your rights will be protected. We have frequently succeeded in resolving these matters discretely before they make it to court.
