How Can We Help?

When the consequences are dire, you must have a strong defense attorney on your side. We provide a strategic defense designed to minimize charges or, when possible, get them dismissed. You can come to our firm for assistance with:

OWI: We handle complex OWI cases that involve multiple or subsequent OWI charges as well as “super drunk” cases. In addition, we defend people in aggravated OWI cases that involve having a child under 16 in the vehicle, or causing injury to another person and/or property damage. In these situations, you will likely face a prison sentence if you severely injure or kill another person.

Child sex offenses: Nothing can destroy a reputation faster than being accused of a sex crime involving a child. If you face charges, it is imperative that you contact an experienced lawyer today. Whether it’s child pornography or sexual assault, you need a tough defense.

Violent crime offenses: A simple fistfight is one thing. Being charged with aggravated assault, assault with a deadly weapon or homicide is another matter. In these types of cases, you will need a strategic attorney with decades of experience.

Attorney Cheltenham also understands that being charged with a crime is difficult to process. You may feel scared, overwhelmed, embarrassed or angry. These are all valid feelings and we will help you and your family get through them.
