Criminal Defense

If you have been accused of a crime your rights and freedom could be at stake. Contact an experienced trial attorney for legal representation.

If you or a family member has been arrested, contact Merritt & Merritt as soon as possible. We have attorneys ready to assist you on the criminal justice system process. We can assist you in every step of the judicial process starting with the arrest, preliminary hearing, bond, trial and appeal. Although providing certainty for each case is not feasible, we will provide the best legal representation to ensure you get the best outcome possible and that your rights are protected.

What we can do

Obtaining a lawyer early in the charges phase of the case is crucial, your freedom depends of it.  Do not take criminal charges lightly, all criminal charges including misdemeanors can stay on your record, showing up on background checks for years.

Before you speak to police or issue a written statement ask to speak with your attorney first.  Anything you say to police or government officials may be brought as evidence against you during trial. You have a constitutional right to speak to your attorney and remain silent.

At Merritt & Merritt, we can gather facts that will be helpful to prove your innocence; often police overlook evidence that will be helpful to your case. One of our seasoned attorneys can gather all the facts and evidence and present it to the court to provide the best outcome for your case.

If you have further questions or need to discuss a potential claim, contact us at 912-764-3434 or via our free case review form.
