How Should You Resolve Pending Charges?

We’re making this decision, the first thing that needs to be considered is the evidence in which the state intends to use against you. Each particular crime has a set of elements that the state must prove beyond a reasonable doubt to convict you. While a defendant may never be compelled to present evidence in any case, credible witnesses that are willing to testify on your behalf can significantly impact whether or not the prosecutor even wishes to proceed in an action against you.

Client Reviews
William Moore saves the day once again... I can’t thank him enough for helping me get my life back on track...You’ll be glad he’s on your defense team, I guarantee it. Eric Bailey
William is an amazing lawyer on the first day he took my case from a felony to a misdemeanor. He always answered my calls and text messages, never a problem. He was always the one in court not sending someone else, unlike my last lawyer. 10/10 would recommend. If I ever have any other problems, he will be the first person I call. Shane B.
