Fighting For Your Rights and Your Freedom

Criminal Defense law requires that lawyers be vigilant to protect the rights of their clients. A person who may be wrongfully accused or may have made a mistake still needs to protect their freedom, property, and constitutional rights. Matthew D Gailey and Associates understand the stressful nature of a prosecution and are there to steer you to the best result for your case.

In order to obtain good results in a criminal case, a wide range of factors must be considered by a prudent attorney. For certain defendants who are inappropriately charged with a felony, the reduction of the charges to a more pertinent misdemeanor or summary offense charge may be a good result. For other defendants, it may be the best course of action to vigorously fight for a client all the way through verdict at a criminal trial. It is the sign of a wise criminal defense attorney to employ the best procedural tools and logical arguments at their disposal to ensure that a criminal defendant gets the best and most just result possible.
