However, the penalties are substantial and require an experienced and skilled legal defense to represent your interest. Brittain Law has years of experience in successful white-collar legal defense.

Assault and Battery

Breaching the peace, disorderly conduct, domestic violence, assault charges

The pain from an assault goes well past the physical damages caused by a stranger at a bar, or from injury by someone we love. It may cause lasting physical damages, loss of functions, and continued pain. Injuries may mean loss from work, medical expenses, loss of trust, and maintaining relationships. A lawsuit may not fully compensate a victim for what they have lost, but a financial award can provide a large step forward towards recovery.

Driving Under Influence

A conviction for drunk driving can cause serious or life changing consequences

Convicted individuals face an automatic driver’s license suspension, a fine up to $1000, and a mandatory 48-hour prison sentence. In addition, residual effects as increases in automobile insurance, or loss of employment may occur. The seriousness of the crime may become quickly escalated if the charges include personal injury or wrongful death. Brittain Law has over three decades of experience in protecting the legal rights of clients following drunk driving charges and minimized or eliminated penalties.

We are committed to fighting for successful results of our clients.

Sex Crimes

Rape, child sexual abuse, trafficking, sexual harassment

Violent crime cases as sex crimes are much more likely to go to trial than non-violent crime cases.
