How to Fight Criminal Charges

The best way to fight criminal charges depends on several factors, including whether:

  • The charge is a misdemeanor or felony.
  • The accused has a history of misdemeanor or felony convictions.
  • The accused has a history of mental illness or victimization, such as abuse.
  • Another person was injured or killed as a result of the alleged crime.
  • Property was damaged as a result of the alleged crime.
  • …and countless other considerations.

We know that experience matters when deciding which attorney to hire. The attorneys at The Boerst Law Office, Inc. have extensive experience defending individuals accused of the following:
