Criminal Defense Practice Areas
The legal team focuses on a wide variety of criminal cases, pertaining to many different areas of the law. They are primarily a DWI law firm but they also work on traffic offenses where alcohol is not involved. In addition to this, they have a great deal of experience in working on domestic family violence charges, along with sexual offenses. These two areas have become a politically charged issue in this country and have the unfortunate tendency of bringing with them false or fabricated allegations and rash judgments. The legal team at The Law Offices of Richard C. McConathy is dedicated to protecting the rights of all their clients, particularly when it comes to allegations that are exaggerated.
Due in part to this family focus, they also work on juvenile crimes, like minors in possession of alcohol and the use of a fake ID. Drug/narcotics charges are another main area of focus, along with marijuana offenses, such as possession and cultivation. Additionally, they also work with those accused of violent crimes, property crimes, and firearm/weapon charges. The firm works with individuals accused of crimes of trust, such as various theft offenses.
The law office will also work with individuals who may have already been convicted and are accused of violation of probation, or if they need their arrest record sealed or expunged in order to keep other people and employers from seeing this information on background checks.
