Criminal Defense and Traffic
The criminal defense attorneys of Surratt & Thompson represent individuals who have been charged with crimes or are under investigation by law enforcement.
Our experienced attorneys represent defendants in all stages of investigation and trial, including:
- pre-arrest interrogations,
- pretrial motions,
- plea negotiations to trial,
- and sentencing phases in District and Superior Courts.
Criminal charges are rarely simple and the effects of such are often far-reaching.
Our criminal defense attorneys respect you and will advise you honestly and clearly of the potential consequences of your charges. It is important through the legal process for you to have realistic expectations of the potential outcome, so we communicate the possibilities to you as well as other intricacies of your particular legal proceedings. You deserve to know the details of your own case.
We evaluate the evidence in your case and discuss possible defense strategies with you to create an aggressive defense of the charges.
If you have been arrested or are under suspicion of a crime, it is important that you contact an attorney as early as possible to understand your options and preserve your rights.
The results of these charges can have a serious impact on your future, from fines and probation to a possible prison sentence. Many times people are tempted to plead guilty to the charges filed against them without fully understanding the consequences. We are ready to swiftly handle the matter with our knowledge and experience, helping our clients obtain the most favorable outcome possible in their situation.
Ignoring this matter or not having an attorney who is familiar with the criminal legal process can have serious consequences once you do appear before the judge. Our firm has the expertise and experience needed in order to see that your rights are protected and you receive the best possible outcome, while also remaining truthful and honest throughout the legal process.
Our criminal defense attorneys at Surratt & Thompson are ready to guide and defend you through the legal process in a respectful and comfortable environment, working hard to ensure you receive the most favorable outcome in your legal proceeding.
When you’re in a pinch, our attorneys are ready to represent you:
“I was in serious need of an attorney that I could trust and afford. I talked to one who quoted me…for an outcome that wasn’t “guaranteed.” This discouraged me… [Surratt & Thompson] responded quickly and helped me set up an appointment with Katie Hinds. Katie explained the worst possible outcome as well as the best in our consultation. I decided to hire her immediately…Three weeks later…I walked out of the courtroom with a better outcome than I thought possible. Within the year, everything will be dismissed! I would recommend this business and Katie Hinds (attorney) to anyone!”
