Federal charges typically have high prison penalty ranges; therefore, it is important to have the right attorney backing you.  Your liberty is a risk.  You need an attorney who will make certain your Constitutional Rights are not violated and will fight for your freedom.  It costs nothing for a consultation.  Call today. 

 

Traffic Tickets, CDL Tickets, and Municipal Courts:

No problem is too big or too small, and occasionally Craig is retained for municipal issues regarding CDL (Commercial Driver’s License) and speeding citations, traffic tickets, minor alcohol violations, and illegal dumping. 

Often Craig never meets his CDL clients in person due to geographic restraints.  This is not a problem as all communication is achieved via telephone, email, and regular mail.  On many occasion an agreeable resolution can be reached without my client being required to be present in court.  Call today.
