Davenport Criminal Defense Attorneys
Fighting State and Federal Criminal Charges
A lot is at stake when you’re charged with a crime. Whether the alleged offense falls under state or federal jurisdiction, you face incarceration, fines, and other penalties. You could also be subject to collateral consequences that place limitations on you, making it difficult to live a productive life after completing your sentence. Still, sanctions arising from a criminal charge are not a guarantee. You have the right to challenge the accusations against you and pursue a favorable outcome that could result in reduced or no penalties. To fight the allegations, you need an attorney who will zealously advocate on your behalf and stand up for you inside and outside the courtroom.

Our Davenport criminal defense lawyers provide counsel for various cases, including:
