After an arrest - no matter the seriousness of the crime - it is critically important to hire a defense attorney as soon as possible. The work of building a strong defense to the charges begins immediately. The sooner your criminal defense lawyer can begin work, the more sophisticated and powerful your defense will be.

Experienced White Collar Crime Defense Lawyers
White collar crimes include a wide range of non-violent financial crimes like public corruption, honest services fraud, bank fraud, embezzlement, obtaining money under false pretenses, conspiracy, mail and wire fraud, tax fraud, identity theft and Internet crimes.
Attorney Mark L. Smith understands the intricacy of white collar criminal law, and has experience defending these types of cases. His past clients include public and non-public officials, lobbyists and corporate employees accused of accepting or giving gifts and/or bribes.
Defense of Serious Drug Charges
Conviction for serious drug possession or distribution charges can carry severe penalties, including long prison sentences and loss of your personal property if the government can prove it was used in the distribution of controlled substances. Attorney Smith has tried more than 80 drug charge cases to a jury, and we have the experience you need to provide the best possible defense.
A Seasoned Attorney for Serious Felony Charges
Felony charges are different from misdemeanor charges. The potential penalties are higher, the cases can be more complicated to defend and - especially in the case of violent crimes - emotions among the prosecution, the victims and the defendant may run very high. Attorney Smith has tried more than 30 murder cases to a jury - if you want to fight your case all the way to the end, we have the experience to mount a powerful defense on your behalf.
