Criminal Defense

If you are facing criminal charges or have recently been arrested, you want an experienced and aggressive defense attorney on your side of the isle fighting for your rights and protecting your interests.

I believe every individual who is being investigated or charged with a crime deserves a thoughtful, aggressive defense. Charges are not convictions or indications of guilt. In fact, a number of factors can lead to inaccurate arrests, unfair charges and poorly applied laws.

I handle a variety of felony and misdemeanor criminal cases in Sioux City and the surrounding communities in Iowa, including:

Assault Charges:

Assault charges can cover a broad group of criminal situations, and charges can range from a simple misdemeanor to a serious felony. An assault occurs when one person's actions or statements put another person in fear of harmful or unwanted physical contact. It is not necessary that actual physical contact occur for the police to arrest you for an assault.

Drug Charges:

Drug charges can run the gamut, from simple possession to more complicated charges relating to transportation and sale. I can help you with any drug related charge you are facing in Sioux City.

Parole Violations:

If you have been incarcerated and recently released, you were actually conditionally released and must comply with the terms of your parole. If you violate your parole, you could quickly find yourself back in custody. Don’t take chances with your freedom. Call me today to discuss compliance measures that will help you get your life back on track.

Probation Violations:

Occasionally, after a criminal conviction, a person is given the opportunity to go on probation rather than spending time in jail or prison. Probation is always preferable to incarceration, but the terms of probation can often make it difficult to avoid a violation. A knowledgeable firm like the Goodman Law Firm can help you understand the impact of a probation violation on your original conviction and will work with you to minimize the consequences. Call me to find out how.

Sexual Abuse Allegations:

Protecting your name and reputation when these serious allegations are being brought against you is my number one priority. I will investigate the charges, be discrete and launch your defense quickly.

Hiring a Criminal Defense Attorney

I understand that the last thing you may want to do is hire an attorney. But working with an experienced, talented and successful criminal defense attorney can often save you time and money overall, while protecting your freedom, reputation and livelihood. Don’t let fear or uncertainty keep you from getting the representation you deserve. Call me today to discuss your options.
