If your freedom is on the line, it simply is not the time to entrust your future into inexperienced or apathetic hands; there is too much on the line.

I have seen the ramifications that can stem from a criminal conviction, and you can be confident that I will do everything possible to ensure that I help you avoid it.

When subjected to a criminal investigation or prosecution, professional legal advice is essential to the accused.

When charged with a crime, the accused faces numerous sanctions including the possibility of jail or prison, fines, loss of employment, and damage to one's reputation. Facing the criminal justice system alone is rarely a wise choice. When accused or investigated by the the government, it is best to seek the advice of an experienced and skilled criminal defense attorney to defend you and protect your rights.

As a criminal defense attorney, Martin Miller Poynter knows that good people sometimes get caught up in situations they wouldn't have wished for. Whether you've been falsely accused, or are just trying to plea bargain and minimize the punishment, we can all relate to that. "I guess you could say that growing up, I got into a good bit of trouble. It's probably a miracle that I'm still alive today with all the things I got into when I was younger. I believe in second chances for everyone, regardless of what you're accused of. As long as you're still living and breathing, there's an opportunity to turn your life around for good, through the choices and decisions you make. We are all only human, and I firmly believe that after every fall, there is an opportunity to get back up again."
