Criminal Defense Practice Areas

The law firm primarily represents individuals who have been charged with driving and driving type offenses, but the attorneys at The Law Offices of Richard C. McConathy also defend domestic violence charges, juvenile offenses, and traffic violations where no alcohol was involved. Domestic violence allegations are particularly difficult and stressful. By understanding this while focusing on staying well informed on current laws, the legal team can be counted on to provide excellent representation in what has become a politically charged area of criminal law.

Drug/narcotics charges are another main area of focus, along with marijuana offenses, such as possession and cultivation. The firm is committed to help non-violent drug offenders keep from receiving the extremely severe and disproportionate penalties that the state imposes on those convicted of marijuana possession. Additionally, they also work with those accused of violent crimes, property crimes, theft offenses and firearm/weapon charges. “Crimes of trust” such as theft, shoplifting and burglary are also handled by the firm.

White Collar crime, such as credit card fraud and identity theft is also a relatively large portion of their casework. In addition to representing those currently involved in the criminal process, they also work on cases that involve violation of probation, along with a focus on record sealing/expunging criminal arrest histories for their clients.
