You Need An Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney

When facing criminal charges, the best thing you can do to protect yourself is to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney.

At the Law Office of Brian W. Devane, Esquire, I have been defending clients against misdemeanor and felony criminal charges for over 25 years. I know how the prosecution approaches cases and I know what it takes to build a successful defense.

I have been appointed as a special prosecutor in more than 30 criminal cases. This experience indicting and prosecuting people has given me great insight into the criminal justice system. Let me put my knowledge — and the law — to work for you.

An Experienced Trial Attorney

Criminal charges can have a major impact on your life. Depending on the charge, you could be facing prison time and substantial fines. No matter the severity of the charge, a conviction will leave a permanent mark on your criminal record. The attorney you hire to represent you, needs to understand the criminal justice system and have experience handling your type of charge.

Over the years, I have successfully defended clients against a wide range of criminal offenses, including:

  • Traffic offenses, such as speeding or running a red light
  • Drunk driving offenses
  • Misdemeanor and felony drug offenses
  • Theft crimes, including identity theft and credit card fraud
  • Battery and assault and aggravated assault
  • Weapons charges
  • White collar crimes

Your lawyer's relationship with the prosecution is critically important. Prosecutors have wide discretion in the offers they can make. I have good working relationships throughout the legal community. As an attorney, I am known as hardworking, dedicated to my clients and fair. My goal, when handling your criminal case, is to get the best result possible for you. Sometimes that means negotiating a deal with the prosecution, other times that means going to court. No matter which path we choose, I am committed to you, your case and your future.
