Criminal defense attorneys

Criminal charges cannot be ignored. From speeding tickets, DWIs and parole violations to violent crimes, all criminal charges can have long-lasting effects — beyond jail time and fines — that you may not think about when you’re first charged. That’s why it’s critical to consult an experienced defense attorney as soon as you’ve been arrested for any criminal charges.

The Dozier Miller team will be a strong, relentless advocate for your rights through the entire investigation, plea-bargaining and trial process.

When the police or federal agents ask to meet with you, we’ll be there. When you’re ready to post bail, we’ll be there. When the prosecution presents its evidence, we’ll be there to make sure your side of the story is told.

We have decades of experience in criminal defense, and we’ve got the know-how to manage your case from start to finish, and to appeals, if necessary. Don’t take a chance on your future; contact Dozier Miller as soon as there is a problem.

TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS

When you’re faced with a traffic violation, pleading guilty and paying the fine may seem like the simplest and fastest path to resolution. It’s important to understand a guilty plea can result in more consequences than a simple fine.

DUI & DWI

Whether you were stopped on the way home after two drinks at happy hour or were involved in a traffic accident where alcohol was a factor, driving under the influence (DUI) charges are serious matters.

PROBATION VIOLATIONS

Being put on probation is an alternative to being put in jail — it’s a second chance. However, probation comes with rules and restrictions. If those rules are broken, there’s a risk of having probation revoked and being ordered to jail.

DRUG CRIMES

Conviction in drug crime cases can have serious and permanent effects on your future, long after you’ve paid the steep fines or served time. If you’ve been arrested on drug possession, trafficking or manufacturing charges, it is critical that you contact an experienced drug crime defense attorney.

VIOLENT CRIME

The justice system is relentless in cracking down on violent crimes. No matter where you live, the punishments for violent crime charges are severe, with severe jail time possible. The effect a conviction can have on your life — your career, your family, your independence — is staggering.
