Formidable Criminal Defense Attorney Protecting the Rights of Lincoln & Lancaster County Clients
Criminal charges are not something you can take lightly and hope they will work themselves out on their own. You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to retain exceptional criminal defense or your freedom, employment, housing, and future rights may be compromised. Attorney Bill Chapin has over 30 years of experience building successful criminal defense strategies and is eager to help you, too.
Individuals charged with drunk driving have two separate issues to deal with. First, they have to resolve their charges through the criminal justice system. Secondly, they need to take on the administrative aspect of their case — namely, the potential suspension of their license by the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles. Your arrest for DUI automatically triggers this administrative suspension: it is not dependent on your conviction. Once arrested, you have a limited amount of time to appeal this suspension.
A felony is the most serious charge you can be convicted of and the penalties for such a conviction are severe. It is highly likely that you could spend more than a year in jail, be ordered to pay expensive fines, and have a black mark on your criminal record that bars you from many employment options. If you are facing a felony charge of any kind, contact our office immediately.
It is illegal to intentionally injure another person, unless in self-defense. Assault covers many actions, including hitting, punching, slapping, kicking, or hitting someone with your car. Since assault is considered a violent crime, you could be facing very serious charges indeed. You need to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney right away.
All drugs — including marijuana — are highly illegal in the state of Nebraska. If you are caught by law enforcement officials with drugs in your possession, you will be arrested and face criminal drug charges. Even small amounts of illegal substances can land you in hot water. Additionally, it is illegal to be in possession of prescription drugs that were not given to you by a physician for a specific medical reason.
