Experienced · Aggressive · Respected

At Susan Fuller & Associates, P.C., our attorneys have represented individuals facing all types of criminal charges, including:

  • DUI/DWAI/DUID offenses: A conviction on any alcohol-related driving offense, drug-related driving offense or marijuana-related driving offense may result in jail time, fines and the suspension of your driver's license. The DUI and DUID sentencing laws are complex and ever-changing and a conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs can pose serious consequences.
  • Traffic violations: We handle minor traffic violations such as speeding tickets to more serious charges such as reckless driving, careless driving, careless driving causing injury, driving under suspension, driving under revocation, leaving the scene of an accident and failure to report an accident.
  • Theft and property crimes: If you have been charged with theft, shoplifting, burglary, robbery, fraud or any other property-related crime, you should contact an attorney with our firm immediately.
  • Assault charges: We have successfully defended numerous clients facing misdemeanor assault charges as well as felony assault charges, regarding both strangers and intimate partners.
  • Domestic violence charges and civil protection orders: We have successfully defended numerous clients facing both misdemeanor and felony domestic violence charges and clients facing civil protection orders.
  • Probation violations: If you are accused of violating the terms of your probation or deferred sentence, the potential consequences can be quite serious. We routinely help individuals regarding probation revocations.
  • Juvenile crimes: A poor choice at a young age should not haunt you or your child forever. Pleading guilty to an offense as a juvenile, even a petty offense, may have long-standing ramifications. We will work diligently to protect your child's future.
  • Dependency and neglect: These cases are often complicated by related criminal charges and can be difficult to navigate without an attorney on your side.

Pre-filing Matters and Arrest Warrants

If you are being investigated for criminal charges, you need to consult with an attorney immediately. You should not talk with police or other law enforcement officers. Despite what officers may tell you, they are not there to help you. Our experienced criminal defense attorneys have successfully resolved numerous cases at the pre-filing stage, resulting in no charges being filed. If charges are filed against you and a warrant for your arrest is issued, we will work with law enforcement and the district attorney's office to facilitate turning you in on the warrant on your terms to help minimize the impact on your daily life as much as possible.
