Criminal Defense

The Law Offices of Steven E. Springer understands that good people occasionally wind up on the wrong side of the law. We’re susceptible to pressure or temptation, can act impulsively, or can simply find ourselves in the wrong place at the wrong time. Over the course of our legal practice, we’ve managed numerous cases where our clients faced embarrassing charges that threatened their reputation, their career, and their family life. 

Common Criminal Charges

Some of the most common scenarios can include:

  • Out for the evening, you misjudge how much alcohol you’ve consumed. You’re pulled over after failing to signal a lane change and get slapped with a DUI.
  • You’re in a crowded place where patrons can’t help but get jostled. Some hothead takes offense, shoving ensues, and now you’re charged with assault!
  • Your honor student won’t back down from a dare and gets nabbed for shoplifting. The mall vows to prosecute to the full extent of the law.
  • Your teenage son or daughter complains you don’t trust them. So you waive curfew for one night. They’re picked up in a burger joint parking lot smoking marijuana.

While no means capital offenses, these are serious charges with serious consequences. The Law Offices of Steven E. Springer can help you get through the stress, frustration, and humiliation of an arrest and its aftermath with prompt, responsive, and effective advocacy.

Advocating for Your Family in Court

The Law Offices of Steven E. Springer is especially sensitive to the ways an arrest can impact a family. Charges ranging from assault to drug possession can radically shift the dynamic of an ongoing divorce or even a settled case.
