Former Prosecutors Defending You
At Nichols & Wallsmith, we know both sides of the coin. Our lawyers are former prosecutors. We know the ins and outs of the local criminal law system. Because we know the steps the prosecution will take, we use proactive defense strategies that undermine its case and protect your rights.
We provide strong, effective criminal defense to clients facing both misdemeanor and felony charges, including:
- Assault and battery
- Murder and manslaughter
- Theft and embezzlement
- Drug crimes, including drug possession, sales and trafficking
Helping You Overcome More Than Your Criminal Charge
At Nichols & Wallsmith, we know that repeat OVWI/OWI/DUIs and drug-related crimes are often caused by dependency problems. Simply keeping you out of jail without fixing the underlying addiction problem won’t help you stay out of trouble in the future.
Clients facing OVWI/OWI/DUIs and drug charges often begin substance abuse treatment from day one. By showing our clients’ willingness to voluntarily get clean and treat the root of their problems, we are able to negotiate better deals with the prosecution and secure alternative forms of restitution — such as probation — that keep our clients out of jail.
Has your family member been arrested for drugs or alcohol? There is hope. At Nichols & Wallsmith, we do more than keep clients out of jail. We give our clients the chance to change their lives.
Alcoholism and drug dependencies aren’t crimes — they are diseases. At Nichols & Wallsmith, we do everything in our power to help our clients avoid the harsh hand of the criminal justice system. Our lawyers work hard to secure alternative solutions that keep our clients out of jail and get them on the road to recovery.
Oftentimes, drug and alcohol dependencies are caused by underlying mental and emotional problems — such as anxiety or depression. Our firm helps clients connect with medical professionals who can treat the root problem and pave the way for a better life.
