Disclaimer – We Value Your Safety

Thank you for visiting www.premierdefensegroup.com. We take our ethical and professional responsibilities seriously. We hope that our website serves as a valuable resource to you in planning your defense, but also want to safeguard you from misusing this information.

All information on our website is produced and maintained by Attorney Tom Pavlinic or by the staff of Premier Defense Group on the behalf of Tom. Any content that is not written directly by Attorney Tom Pavlinic is reviewed and edited by him in order to maintain the content’s merit and accuracy. Because laws change, and content to which we may link can change or expire, our content is routinely checked for integrity.


Please note that the information on our website is being presented for educational purposes only, and should not be construed as legal advice. Under no circumstance should you make any legal decisions of any kind based upon our content without first directly consulting us, or another qualified attorney.

The use of this information does not establish an attorney-client relationship. The confidential attorney-client relationship begins with your first contact to us via telephone or email. The attorney-client relationship is finalized when a formal retainer agreement is executed.


All case results discussed on this website are actual results from Premier Defense Group cases. Our cases are not discussed on this website without the approval of the client(s) involved in the case. We feel that the discussing of these successful outcomes on our website is especially important because many of them cannot be found on external websites, perhaps because not-guilty verdicts in sex crimes cases are not as desirable to news media as guilty verdicts.

Please note that each case is unique, and although we strive to achieve the most desirable outcome possible, no lawyer can guarantee a successful result for any given case. While Tom and his local Group attorneys together have an impressive track record of success, not all of their cases have yield a desirable outcome and have resulted in guilty verdicts.
