Criminal Defense

Involved In A Criminal Case?

The Sofia Law Firm provides representation at all stages of the criminal process including questioning by police, pre-filing representation, bond hearings, plea negotiation, trial, and violations of probation. Once you have been arrested, the State will generally file charges within the first few weeks. During that time, an experienced attorney may be able to prevent the State from filing any charges or convince them to file less serious charges than are alleged by the police. The Sofia Law Firm has successfully prevented the State from filing many domestic violence and drug charges and even charges as serious as attempted murder.
