Clarksburg Criminal Defense Lawyers

Experienced Attorneys Who Know Both Sides

If you’ve been charged with a crime, it can feel like the system has already convicted you. But it shouldn’t be that way. Accused criminals are innocent until proven guilty so that evidence can be considered and testimony heard at trial. This prevents individuals from being unfairly punished and keeps penalties from being too severe for the crime.

The criminal defense lawyers at Shaffer Madia Law in Clarksburg have both prosecuted and defended a wide variety of cases. We believe all individuals have a right to a fair trial, even when public opinion is against you. Our experience in the criminal justice system gives us a unique perspective that allows us to build a strong case for our clients.

Your Rights When Accused

Remember, the law provides certain protections for individuals accused of crimes. You don’t have to volunteer information to the police, and you shouldn’t say anything before consulting with a lawyer. You also don’t have to submit to a search of your home or vehicle without a warrant. Make sure the police and prosecutors are staying within the bounds of the law.
