Criminal Law

criminal-defense-richmond-harper-legalWhen you’re charged with a crime, you need to immediately start fighting to work for your freedom. The prosecution has the full force of the police department and government behind them. To match the work they will put in trying to convict you, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney who can give your defense the time and attention it deserves. If you’ve been charged with a serious crime, call Greg Harper Legal Group to fight for you.

Building a Defense

If you’re charged with a crime, guilt or innocence don’t matter. The police have decided you’re guilty and will do everything they can to find as much evidence against you as possible. Even if you’re factually guilty, there may be any number of legal defenses available that could require the charges to be dismissed. When you come to our firm, we will work to find any evidence in your favor including witness testimony and surveillance videos. At the same time, we will explore legal issues including unlawful searches, the statute of limitations, and whether the prosecution’s allegations meet the legal requirements for the crime charged.

Pretrial Rights

After a criminal charge or accusation, employers often rush to suspend or even terminate the accused. This is often done without regard to the fact that a criminal charge does not equal guilt and that the accused may be completely innocent. While private employers have wide ranging rights to terminate employees at will, you may have certain protections in your employment contract. We can help you exercise those protections as well as proactively negotiate a resolution with your employer that allows you to return to work either immediately or after your case is resolved.
