When You Have Been Accused Of A Crime
When you have been accused of a crime, it is important to have the help of an attorney who is experienced in criminal defense. All lawyers are trained in the law before they begin practice, but there are some things you can only learn on the job.
An experienced attorney can analyze your case and help you understand the procedures and strategies that will help protect you.
Decades Of Experience
Since 1977, the attorneys of Sommer and Bear have been defending people who are facing a wide variety of charges, including:
- Drug crimes
- Sex crimes
- Property crimes
- Violent crimes
Before becoming criminal defense attorneys, our lawyers worked as prosecutors. They can view the criminal justice system from different perspectives, giving them insight into how to best represent you.
They have represented clients in hundreds of trials, and have extensive experience with how the criminal justice system works both inside and outside the courtroom. They understand the strategies that prosecutors use to secure a conviction, and they understand the strategies that can help defendants.
