As an experienced DUI lawyer in Oneonta, Attorney Eversole understands what it takes to defend a motorist facing charges of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Drunk driving can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony and often carries very serious penalties, particularly if a driver has a previous conviction on his or her record or is involved in an accident while accused of driving drunk. In each case, an experienced drunk driving defense lawyer in Oneonta will be best able to discuss your rights after a thorough review of your case.

Those facing robbery, burglary or theft charges, or those facing assault and battery or domestic violence charges, should always consult an Oneonta Criminal Defense Lawyer as early as possible. Prosecutors have great latitude in how such cases are charged. In theft cases, the dollar amount involved, the record of the defendant, and whether or not a weapon was used may all have a drastic impact in how a case is charged, as well as the potential penalties a client faces. Likewise, domestic violence and assault charges can be either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on whether a weapon was used, the extent of the injuries and the previous criminal history of the client.

Drug charges in Oneonta can also vary greatly, depending on how the state files charges, as can the potential penalties faced by a client. By consulting an Oneonta Drug Crimes Defense Lawyer at the earliest stages of such cases, a prosecutor may be convinced that lesser charges are warranted, or that a client is a good candidate for treatment or other alternative sentencing.

Of course in many cases a defense lawyer needs to be ready to challenge evidence and the statements made by witnesses. Filing motions to suppress may also weaken the state's case in preparation for trial. At Eversole Law LLC, we strongly believe a client's best chance for a reduction or dismissal of the charges come through aggressively and thoroughly preparing a case for trial from the moment we take the responsibility of representing a defendant facing criminal charges. By preparing a case for trial, we stand the best chance of backing the state down, or of winning an agreeable plea bargain.

In the event the state can't or won't make a deal in the best interest of a client, we are prepared to take the case to trial. Whatever the charges, Eversole Law LLC is ready to fight for your rights. If you are facing misdemeanor or felony charges in Oneonta, contact us today for a confidential consultation to discuss your rights.
