You are researching our website because either you or someone dear to you is accused of committing a sex crime involving a child or adult. Given the view of today's society on these types of allegations, you are probably experiencing the darkest days of your life. Do not panic or lose hope: accused does not mean guilty. For over two decades our law firm has developed an expertise in sex crimes defense, and has successfully represented individuals in over 25 states. A key element to our success is that each of our cases receives the highest quality defense we can offer, and that's exactly what you'll get should you entrust us with resolving your case.
Accused, Suspected, or Charged with a Sex Crime? Now What?
- If you or someone you know has been accused of child sexual abuse, rape, molestation, or any other sex crime, do not talk with the police or child protective services without an attorney present.
- Please do not make the unfortunate mistake of waiting and hoping that the accusations will fade, or that the police will drop the charges without the influence of an experienced sex crimes attorney.
- Do not rush into hiring a general-practice attorney. When you are charged with a sex crime, your opponent will likely be a prosecutor who routinely handles sexual abuse cases. Due to this specific experience, he or she may have an advantage over the defense attorney. We however, have been focusing exclusively on sex crimes defense for the last 20+ years.
Choosing an Attorney For a Sex Crime Charge
For the last 25+ years Tom has chosen to limit the focus of his practice to the defense of sex crimes. Sex crimes defense is not an area for a general-practice criminal attorney. Sex crime cases are unique in many ways and require expertise, and proven defense strategies known by lawyers with vast experience in this area of law.
Defense attorneys who do not have experience in representing clients accused of sexual offenses against children may not understand how important it is to mount an aggressive defense. These types of cases are often considered distasteful by the public, and inexperienced counsel may lack the confidence to cross-examine minor witnesses. Only an experienced sex crime lawyer who handles these cases as an integral and regular part of his practice should be considered to undertake your representation.
It is important to know that sex crimes defense is very different from general criminal defense. We strongly suggest that you read more about why sex crimes are unique.
