Aggressive Trial Defense for the Wrongfully Accused

Aggressive Criminal Defense Attorney

Marshall R. Sumrall understands that being charged with a crime can be a frightening experience. To make matters worse, the collateral effects cause hardship and even more stress. The defendant is always in a poor position to represent himself. Given the emotional upheaval involved, you may have difficulty speaking to the prosecutors or other authorities, and there are ethical rules which can prevent them from speaking to you. It is always in your best interests to be represented by an attorney who can speak to the authorities on your behalf. Ideally, you want constructive and straightforward advice from an experienced defense attorney.

It is important to contact an attorney right away if you have been charged or think you may be charged with a crime.
