At The Lopes Law Firm, we hope that you never have need of a criminal defense attorney. Although not all criminal offenses are equal in penalty or severity, criminal charges should always be considered and treated seriously. Once charges have been filed against you, time is of the essence. There is no sense in wasting time, and every moment is valuable in building your defense. Although The Lopes Law Firm does not and cannot guarantee the outcome of any case, criminal charges are always best handled with legal representation. We want you to have the best possible defense available, and building a defense strategy is crucial, both for the outcome of your case, and in order to protect your rights.


Violent crimes are of special concern, since they often have enduring repercussions. A violent felony can cost you your right to vote, your right to own a firearm, and can seriously hamper your future employment opportunities. Finding the right criminal attorney in the case of violent offenses is especially important. Your future opportunities can be very negatively impacted by having a violent crime on your record, not to mention that sentences can be extremely severe for violent offenses. We want to make sure that your rights are protected, and you should as well.
