Drug Charges

State and federal drug laws are constantly changing and confusing to most people. I will protect your rights and help you separate fear based on media hype and old laws from your current legal options.

When you are contending with charges for driving while intoxicated and other traffic violations, your job could be at risk. I will help you understand the process and develop a strong defense for the best possible outcome.

Young people experimenting is as old as time. But if your child crosses the line, time is of the essence. They could be facing the same penalties as an adult. I will walk alongside you and your family for optimal results.

Federal Criminal Charges

If you suspect you are being investigated or have been arrested for allegations of a federal crime, contact me right away. These types of charges are complicated and best handled by an experienced defense attorney.

Violent Crimes

If you are convicted of a violent crime, you could face years in prison and a lifelong stigma of a criminal record. I will go to battle to minimize harsh consequences and ensure your due process is fair and just.

Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney At Your Side

When you have been charged with a crime, whether it is at the state or federal level, it can feel overwhelming and you may not know where to turn. The important thing to remember is that you have rights, and a good criminal defense lawyer can help you protect those rights and provide the guidance you need along the way.

I am Jeffrey Everhart, and I have been a champion for people – shepherding them as they face an intimidating criminal justice system – since 1982. I am prepared to put my skills and experience to minimizing potentially harsh penalties or wrong outcomes, especially in the case where law enforcement has overreached its lawful boundaries. I will guide you through the process, help you understand how it works and what you can expect. Because many cases are subject to pretrial conferences, I can also keep you up to date on what the other side is doing.

Building A Dedicated Defense Against All Criminal Charges

There is not a case that I am unwilling to take on. I have handled over a hundred murder cases, including dozens of cases involving capital murder charges. I also defend against somewhat less serious criminal charges, including drug charges, DWI and other violent crimes. I can represent you in state and federal courts.

Make no mistake, every criminal charge, felony or misdemeanor, carries significant potential consequences and can follow you for the rest of your life. That is why it is important to have experienced legal counsel in your corner.

Candid Advice. Assertive Defense.

When you or your loved one is dealing with law enforcement, the last thing you need is vague answers from your lawyer. I am committed to providing you with straightforward information about your situation. I understand how overwhelming it can be when your social reputation, family relationships and career are in jeopardy as you face allegations of a criminal offense. I offer legal advice and defense strategies to help you choose the best path forward. I will be your shepherd to guide you throughout the process.
