The Experience You Want In Your Corner If You Face Criminal Charges
Facing criminal charges in Kentucky can be unnerving. However, there often is a difference between what the state can charge and what it can prove. As a former prosecutor for the Office of the Commonwealth's Attorney in McCracken County, attorney Kevin Olsen of Olsen & Oliver, PLLC, understands this.
Our Paducah law firm defends people in a wide range of criminal cases, including:
- DUI defense: A DUI (drunk driving) conviction can cost you your license and lead to higher insurance premiums, in addition to the fines and possible jail time the court may impose.
- Drug crimes: We handle all types of drug crimes, such as drug possession and drug trafficking, involving all types of drugs, ranging from marijuana to methamphetamine. Many drug charges are felonies. A felony conviction will have an immediate and detrimental effect on your life; you will lose your right to vote and to own firearms, as well as your ability to hold certain types of employment.
- Domestic violence: Domestic violence convictions have many serious consequences and must be defended aggressively. Subsequent offenses may have greatly enhanced punishments.
- Theft defense: A theft conviction has serious future implications for your life. Few employers will hire someone who has a reputation for dishonesty.
- Assault: An assault charge may result in jail time, fines and a permanent criminal record.
- Juvenile defense: Legal representation of juveniles who are charged with violation of the law requires particular knowledge of the law that applies to a juvenile offense.
