Criminal Defense
You've been charged with a crime and you want to know what will happen to you next. Maybe you've been wrongfully charged. Maybe you’re worried about the long-term effects of a conviction. Will this go on your criminal record? Will there be jail time? You have many questions and no idea where to start. Hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney quickly to assess your situation is crucial! Rely on my experience to ease your mind.


Alcohol Offenses

 A DUI or a BUI can be embarrassing to both you and your family. It can mean court fines, your job, your driver's license being suspended, your livelihood, jail time, and changes to your car insurance premiums. Many factors can affect your case’s outcome, including the reason for the traffic stop, your age, physical health, medical history, the Field Sobriety Tests, and the proper functioning of the breathalyzer machine. And while there are no guarantees, it may be possible to get your case dismissed or reduced so that you can resume a normal life.


Drug Offenses

A drug charge or conviction can affect your ability to secure employment, apply for college or student loans, or rent an apartment. It can even impact child custody and visitation. Unfortunately many people wait until the last minute to retain an drug charge attorney. Don't make this mistake. Hire an attorney who has experience handling state and federal drug cases.

Maybe the person was arrested by police after an investigation was conducted and an arrest warrant was issued. Either way, the person is now in jail as a result of a criminal charge but before any trial.

Confidential Informants, a.k.a. “Police Snitches,” Revealed

Susan Williams 0 2355

Confidential informants are one of those things that seem to lurk around in the underground of criminal activity. The idea of the police working with someone who is facing criminal charges is a very sketchy concept to some, but a reality in the criminal justice system. When police are working with people who they are locking up or threatening to lock up, you may start to wonder if the police are looking out for “the Government’s” confidential informants, or is their first priority obtaining convictions …

I Found a Good Attorney

My daughter and I needed the services of a good attorney. The attorneys I used in the past were okay, but were lacking in a variety of areas which motivated me to look elsewhere. I called Susan Williams and she responded immediately. She listened to the issues that I brought to her and put together a case to help my daughter's struggle for justice. She kept me informed of each step and explained the process as the case evolved. The case was unusual and complicated; however, Susan Williams continued to fight for a cause, not for a check. Her persistence paid off and she won my daughter's case. I recommend her legal services to anyone and everyone who may need a good attorney.
