Criminal Defense

Everything from misdemeanors to felonies, DWI/DUIs, District Court Appeals, we are here to defend you. Let us Roar to the Rescue!

Misdemeanors (including DWIs)/Traffic

Traffic and misdemeanor charges are brought in what is called District Court. In District Court, a criminal defendant does not have the option of a jury trial. The judge, and the judge alone, decides your guilt or innocence. All Defendants have an absolute right to appeal to Circuit Court within thirty days if convicted, where you are entitled to a jury. District Court is an opportunity to resolve your case with limited attorney fees. Lion Legal Services attorneys are often able to obtain favorable results in District Court and resolve the issue finally for clients. You should treat District Court as seriously as you would Circuit Court so as to prevent the need, time and stress of an appeal.

If you are found or plead guilty in District Court you have thirty days to file an appeal to Circuit Court, no questions asked. You do not have to state a basis for your appeal or otherwise justify why you think you should be able to get another chance at defending yourself. Once appealed, the case starts all over again with a different judge and a different prosecutor and a jury. It’s a complicated process to appeal and you must follow the rules strictly. If you want to appeal, contact us immediately!


From probation revocations to sex crimes to gun or drug crimes to violent crimes, Lion Legal Services’ criminal defense team is experienced in representing Defendants accused of a variety of charges. Freedom is one of the most important tenets of our society; your freedom is worth protecting vigorously and you only get one bite at the apple of proving you are not guilty.
