Our Criminal Defense Practice

Every criminal conviction carries consequences. Even a conviction of a simple violation means you could be forced to pay a high fine or lose your motor vehicle license. More serious offenses lead to more severe penalties, including jail time, so you need to be sure that you understand exactly how a conviction could impact your future. Immigrants are subject to deportation for the conviction of certain offenses, and we are sensitive to those concerns.

At LaVelle Law & Associates, P.C., our criminal defense lawyer, William LaVelle, has over two decades of experience defending individuals accused of crimes. A former prosecutor, he knows how to attack the state's case. He has handled many cases inside the courtroom, and he is confident that he will be able to build a defense that helps you protect your freedom and minimize the impact upon your current and future employment or immigration status.
