The Criminal Justice System can be complex and unforgiving, but at Burkhardt Legal, we understand the ins and outs of this system and will fight hard to ensure you achieve the best possible legal outcome in your case. At Burkhardt Legal, we understand that many times, there are two (or more) sides to every story, and we are committed to pursuing every possible defense that may be available in your case. Furthermore, we understand that sometimes, good people make mistakes, and we will work to hard to minimize the negative long-term effects of an arrest or charge on your record so that you can move forward with your life. We handle various types of criminal cases, including but not limited to:
We will assess your case and your legal options from every angle, first working diligently to get your charges dismissed or reduced, either through a diversionary program or a solid legal defense. If a dismissal or reduction in charges is not possible, we will work aggressively to prepare your case for trial or negotiate a favorable plea deal, taking into account your desires and wishes for the outcome of your case.
At Burkhardt Legal, we also specialize in representing people charged with offenses for the first time. Depending on your charges and background, you may qualify for Misdemeanor Diversion/Deferred Prosecution, Felony Pre-Trial Diversion, Drug Court, Veterans Court, or Mental Health Court. Some of these programs may also be available to you even if it is not your first-time offense. Contact us today to discuss the benefits of these alternative programs and whether you may qualify for admission.
