Criminal Defense



Aggressive Defense for Criminal Cases

When facing serious criminal charges, it is important to work with an attorney that fights for your rights and understands your options.

Drug Charges

While the possession of small amounts of marijuana has been decriminalized, more serious drug offenses are prosecuted aggressively. If you have been charged with a drug crime, it is necessary to work with an experienced lawyer who can deliver a strong defense in the criminal courts.

Domestic Assault

Domestic assault and spousal violence are serious issues. The results can be catastrophic and can have long-term effect on your future. Whether or not the charge resulted from a serious threat, or even if the evidence of a domestic assault is tenuous, prosecutors rarely drop charges.

Sexual Assault

Being charged with a sexual assault is one of the most devastating events you could experience. It has the potential to change your life. Sexual assault crimes are considered to be particularly heinous and prosecutors are relentless in the pursuit of convictions for these offenses. Because of mandatory sex offender registration and the high possibility of jail, the stakes are clearly very high for anyone facing a sex crime charge. C. Jordan Handy is a lawyer, who will be as relentless in your defense as the most zealous of prosecutors.

Murder

If you are being investigated for a federal crime, you need the services of an aggressive defense attorney that understands the federal court system. Local and federal authorities have unlimited resources to prosecute you and they will be used to investigate and obtain evidence to reach a conviction. Whether you are charged with sale or transportation of drugs, kidnapping, child pornography, tax or mail fraud, or worse, you will need expert representation to have a positive outcome at the federal level.
