The conviction of a crime can lead directly to loss of freedom, job and family. In representing clients preparation is essential and the client needs to know the ramifications that will result from a conviction or plea bargain. For example, clients charged with OWI (drunk driving) should be aware of not only fines and jail sentence but also resulting action by the Secretary of State affecting driver's license revocation.
In summary, in representing clients charged with a crime we are not judgmental. Our job is to aggressively represent defendants up to and continuing through trial if necessary.
We have been handling serious criminal matters (both felony and misdemeanor) for more than 40 years. This experience is called upon in virtually every criminal case in which we have been retained by our clients.
The law firm of John W. Bissell, P.C. provides clients with defenses on a full range of criminal charges. This firm has provided successful defenses to charges ranging from simple misdemeanors to felonies which carry penalties of life imprisonment. Whatever crime is charged our defense is based on the early development of a defense strategy and being better prepared than the prosecuting attorney.
