 Criminal Defense / Traffic & Municipal  Violations


 Pristine Litigation



In criminal law, the state or federal government brings charges against a person for committing an act that has been deemed a crime. In order to successfully convict an individual of a crime, the government needs to prove to a jury that the defendant is guilty "beyond a reasonable doubt."

Individuals can be charged with a variety of crimes, as detailed below.


Individuals can be charged with a variety of crimes, including:

• Drug Crimes (possession, trafficking, cultivation, distribution, etc.) 
• Sex Crimes (rape, molestation, assault, pornography crimes, prostitution, lewd conduct, indecent exposure, sexual harassment, sexual abuse, crimes against children.) 
• Theft Crimes (embezzlement, petty theft, grand theft, grand theft auto, burglary, shoplifting, fraud) 
• White Collar Crimes (fraud, embezzlement, extortion, counterfeiting, identity theft, forgery, money laundering, racketeering, cyber crimes, bribery, insider trading, pyramid schemes) 
• Traffic Violations (DUI, DWI, vehicular manslaughter, hit & run) 
• Murder (first degree, second degree) 
• Violent crimes (domestic violence, aggravated assault, battery, hate crimes, weapons charges, armed robbery) 
• Juvenile crimes
• Kidnapping
• Arson
• Terrorist threats
• Espionage/treason/conspiracy



Felonies are serious criminal offenses that usually result in harsh legal penalties, including probation, steep monetary fines, no less than a year in state prison, and sometimes even the death penalty. Common types of felony crimes include arson, murder, kidnapping, grand theft, armed robbery, terrorist threats, rape, aggravated assault, treason, burglary, embezzlement, and certain drug crimes. When an individual is convicted of a felony, he/she may lose the right to certain privileges, such as the right to vote, buy and possess weapons, serve jury service, and hold certain professions.
