We Work To Minimize The Impact Of Criminal Charges

Being arrested and charged with a crime is a frightening experience. The consequences of a conviction can impact every aspect of your life. In some cases, even an accusation can have negative consequences. The criminal defense lawyers at Hoffman Walker & Knauf work to minimize the impact of a criminal charge through experienced legal representation. Whether we work to get a case dismissed, achieve an acquittal or seek alternative sentencing, we have a strong track record of preventing criminal charges from upending our clients’ lives.

The Lawyer You Hire Can Make A Difference

Having a criminal conviction on your record will have a long-standing negative effect on both you and your family. A felony conviction can lead to the loss of your job and the loss of your freedom. A conviction even on lesser offenses may result in the loss of a professional license, difficulty finding employment, difficulty in leasing apartments, eviction from public housing or ineligibility for educational loans.

Call Our Criminal Defense Hotline

The most critical moments in defending someone against criminal charges are often in the first few hours after an arrest. Sometimes, it can even be before an arrest, when law enforcement authorities merely question someone in connection with a criminal matter. That is why we have established an after hours criminal defense hotline. If you have been arrested or questioned in a criminal matter, call 859-535-0143 and we will respond promptly. It is vitally important that you take advantage of your right to have a lawyer present for any questioning by police.
