Criminal Defense

At Clawson and Staubes, LLC, we understand that being investigated for or charged with a criminal offense is a serious matter, with the potential consequences being catastrophic.  If you, a family member, or a loved one is being investigated for or is charged with a criminal offense, you need a skilled criminal attorney as soon as possible.

We are fully committed to taking a client-centered approach in zealously advocating for the rights of our clients.  Our criminal defense division will be there every step of the way in providing sound legal advice and hands-on representation.  We have extensive criminal trial experience and we relish the opportunity to fight for your rights in front of a jury, if that is what is in the best interest of your case.

The Constitution and other laws guarantee people suspected or accused of committing crimes certain rights.  Even when you believe that the prosecution has substantial evidence against you, a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney can advise whether the evidence can be suppressed due to a violation of your rights.  Further, an experienced attorney can also assist you in exploring options that may not result in a criminal record.

At Clawson and Staubes, LLC, we take a unique approach to criminal defense.  Whereas most criminal attorneys practice as solo practitioners or in a small firm setting, Clawson and Staubes, LLC, is able to provide all the benefits of a large firm, while still devoting the attention and skill that you deserve.  We take pride in timely returning phone calls and e-mails and taking a proactive approach in your defense.  We make certain that our criminal defense division has plenty of support staff to aid in conducting investigations and gathering evidence to combat the accusations against you.  We have the ability to devote resources, research tools, staff, experience, and attention to detail to your case, which provides an all-around stronger criminal defense.

We are aware that the costs of representation are often an un-planned for expense and that your need for legal representation is immediate.  Therefore, our firm offers reasonable rates with reasonable payment plans.
