Bearnson & Caldwell is both experienced and capable to help you as your criminal law firm of choice. Our attorneys have a proven track record of aggressively defending clients accused of all types of felonies and misdemeanors, because at Bearnson & Caldwell, our goal is to protect your rights and fight for the justice that anyone who is accused of a crime deserves.

Including a former felony prosecutor, all of the attorneys at Bearnson & Caldwell practice criminal law. We understand how prosecutors think, we know the rules, and we know what it will take to make sure you get the best defense possible.  We use our knowledge, skills, and experience to your advantage, and that includes knowing the prosecution’s case and being able to exploit its weaknesses.

We have successfully defended clients accused of all types of violations in criminal law, including:

  • DUI & related charges
  • Drug charges
  • Violent crime charges
  • Theft, burglary, and other property crime charges
  • Obstruction of justice charges
  • Juvenile charges
  • White collar crime charges
  • Sexual assault charges
  • Probation & parole violations
  • Internet crimes

At Bearnson & Caldwell, you do not have to live with your conviction forever. We help numerous clients ease or even erase the repercussions commonly attenuated with criminal convictions, including records of criminal arrest, criminally recorded DNA, and of course, the conviction itself.  We can also help ease the severity of a conviction, or prepare it for expungement by obtaining “402” reductions that reduce a conviction to a lesser degree.

If you are facing any kind of criminal charge, you will soon discover that the prosecutor’s job is to aggressively prosecute and convict you. Too often, defense attorneys immediately accept plea bargains, either because they do not truly understand the process, or because getting a quick resolution is the lazy way to get your case done. To actually defend your rights and freedoms, you need attorneys that will be no less aggressive than the prosecution.  Attorneys who are willing to stand up to the State and its prosecutors and defend you in a way that presents your case, and protects your rights. That is why at Bearnson & Caldwell, we defend DUI and criminal cases aggressively, rather than immediately seek plea bargains before your case has even been explored. With years of experience ranging from prosecution, through trials, and into appeals, Bearnson & Caldwell‘s criminal law attorneys will thoroughly examine and investigate your case. We will take the time to sit down and discuss all of your options so you can know the best route to take, whether that means trying your case before a jury, or exploring a plea agreement to a different or lesser charge.

Please call Bearnson & Caldwell for an initial consultation. We can explain your options and your rights, and will defend you against the charges you are facing.
