An Aggressive Defense Against Criminal Charges
Criminal charges can take a big toll on your life. Even misdemeanor offenses could land you in jail, disqualify you from certain occupations, cause irreparable damage to your reputation and result in steep fines. Any type of criminal charge demands an aggressive defense. You only get one shot at building a solid case from the start, and even small missteps could cost you your freedom.
At Roseman Miller Law in Kentucky, our lawyers can protect you through all stages of the criminal proceedings. We have extensive trial experience totaling more than two decades. Our founding attorney has completed rigorous training in criminal trial litigation through the National Forensic College at Cardozo School of Law. He is also is certified in standardized field sobriety testing, the same training that police officers go through.
Because prosecutors know that our lawyers are well-equipped to defend clients, and that we aren’t afraid to go to trial, they’re more likely to consider favorable plea agreements – to your benefit.
The Value Of A Defense Team That Knows Kentucky Courts
While state-level criminal law is the same across Kentucky, local courts differ in how they apply the law and in what options are available to you. Some judges are more lenient than others. Some counties allow home incarceration while others don’t. Some allow weekend and jail release. Some have diversion programs to avoid jail for certain types of crimes. To take full advantage of these options, you need a lawyer who understands the nuances of the specific court where your case is handled.
Our lawyers have that valuable insight. We have handled criminal cases in half of the 22 counties in Kentucky. We will use that knowledge to advocate for your rights, help you get a reasonable bail and work to clear your record.
Our Thorough Approach To All Kinds Of Charges
We can defend you against charges such as:
- DWI-related charges and serious traffic violations
- Theft charges such as shoplifting and felony theft
- Drug violations involving possession or trafficking in controlled substances
- Assault and battery, including simple assault (a misdemeanor), felony assault and domestic violence-related assault charges
- Sex crimes such as rape, sexual abuse and prostitution-related charges
- White collar crimes such as fraud, embezzlement, mail and wire fraud, and identity theft
- Domestic violence charges
- Federal crimes such as drug trafficking, conspiracy, fraud, child pornography charges and other federal offenses
- Restraining order violations
In each of these cases, we conduct a thorough investigation. Depending on the case, we may enlist trusted experts such as investigators, toxicologists and forensic specialists to gather a solid foundation of evidence. We can use that evidence to develop the right strategy for your unique case. When appropriate, we may have favorable experts testify on your behalf and poke holes in the prosecution’s case.
Facing A Restraining Order?
There are several types of restraining orders in Kentucky, including emergency protective orders (EPOs), domestic violence orders (DVOs) also known as interpersonal violence orders (IVOs). These types of restraining orders can significantly curtail your freedom and expose you to additional criminal charges if you violate them. Some of these orders arise from divorce cases, with one spouse bringing false or exaggerated allegations in order to gain the upper hand in a divorce case.
Our lawyers have extensive experience challenging these orders. We can fight to protect your freedom, reputation and rights, including your parental rights.
3 Reasons Why You Need A Defense Lawyer
Here are some key things to consider:
- The criminal justice system is complicated. One misstep can cost you your rights, freedoms and opportunity to fight the charges or raise compelling evidence.
- A lot of prosecutors won’t be willing to talk to you or negotiate a favorable plea deal if you don’t have a lawyer.
- The potential consequences are severe. Depending on the charges, a conviction can impact not only your freedom, but also your ability to secure student loans, adopt children, obtain a professional license and get certain types of jobs.
