What Are Common Types of Criminal Cases?
No matter the reason you need a criminal defense attorney, our criminal law firm is capable and ready to defend your case. We can help with the following cases:
DUI / DWI
Across the country, DUI / DWI laws are becoming stricter. If you have been stopped for driving under the influence, then you cannot afford to proceed without consulting a trustworthy criminal defense attorney. Battling a DUI charge is possible, but if you do nothing — or do not use a lawyer — you are much more likely to be convicted. Even on your first criminal offense, you’ll face costly fines, license revocation, probation and possible jail time if convicted. Additionally, you may have to complete alcohol safety courses and community service. Penalties for subsequent offenses become significantly greater.
Drug crimes are unique in that they carry a certain stigma. If convicted of a drug crime, you not only face fines and jail time, but may also have difficulty when you seek employment in the future. A team of criminal law attorneys from Kardos, Rickles & Hand can explain the different types of drug crimes. Offenses like minor possession of marijuana carry the smallest penalty. However, crimes like intent to distribute or drug trafficking are dealt with very harshly by the criminal justice system and are punishable by lengthy prison sentences.
Violent Crimes and Sex Crimes
Violent crimes and sexual offenses are the most serious crimes with which you can be charged. You face severe penalties if convicted, and you are also likely to have extreme difficulty obtaining gainful employment in the future. At Kardos, Rickles & Hand, our Bucks County criminal defense attorneys understand what is at stake and we are prepared to utilize every resource at our disposal to protect your freedom and your reputation.
