When you are arrested for criminal charges, you need to do all you can to protect your rights, future, finances, and reputation, all of which are on the line if you get convicted.

The clock is ticking, so don’t lose another minute more.

No Matter the Charges, We Will Fight Them

A cornerstone of our philosophies here at Cutler law Office, P.A. is that every case is defensible. Regardless of your charges and what the prosecution claims to have in terms of evidence, there is a way to protect your rights and improve your odds. It comes down to know-how and tenacity, two traits Attorney Cutler possesses in excess.

Criminal charges we can help you combat include:

  • Domestic battery: Have you been accused of hurting or threatening a family member, roommate, or your boyfriend or girlfriend? Domestic battery is a serious crime that catches the public’s attention quickly. Be ready to defend your name and reputation with our help.
  • Driving under the influence (DUI): If you have been pulled over for drunk driving, do not be pressured into pleading guilty. Act quickly by dialing (208) 209-5363 and getting our Jefferson County DUI lawyer on your side. DUI charges can be challenged with the right approach.
  • Drug crimes: The American criminal justice system is often criticized for being overly harsh on drug crime offenders. The Idaho criminal justice system is no exception. For example, possessing less than 3 ounces of marijuana could put you in jail for one year.
  • Sex crimes: The vast majority of convicted sex crime offenders in Idaho are required to register with a public, statewide registry. Holding a job, continuing your education, and even finding a place to live can all become next-to-impossible if you are forced to register yourself as a sex offender. You must take steps to protect your rights.
  • Theft crimes: Even a minor theft crime, like petit theft, can slam you with high fines and a lengthy stay in jail. Do what you can to counter theft crime charges by calling on our criminal defense team.
  • Traffic offenses: Were you ticketed for a traffic offense? Don’t just pay the amount automatically. Let our legal team know what happened, and we can let you know if you should be fighting the ticket. You save yourself significant finances in the long run by preventing marks from being placed on your driving record, which will raise your insurance premiums.
  • Violent crimes: If you have been accused of a violent crime, then you have no time to lose. Idaho courts are notorious for being strict on violent crime convicts. Our law firm can help defend against the most serious of violent crimes, including manslaughter and assault and battery.

As your Jefferson County criminal defense team, it will be our primary goal to do all we can to secure the best possible outcome for your case. In some situations, the best possible outcome is an acquittal, which means the court or a jury finds you not guilty of your charges. In other situations, your case could be dismissed due to legal errors or a general lack of convincing evidence. It might be possible still in other cases to convince the judge presiding over your case to reduce your charges, effectively reducing your sentencing requirements as well.

Let’s discuss possible defense strategies for your own case. Call (208) 209-5363 now to request a no-cost case evaluation.
