Law Firm Overview

DUI • Theft • Drugs • Assault • Misdemeanors • Felonies

From the moment you step into our office we are ready to fight for you. Every client and every case receives our respect. We aggressively fight for every person who feels like their backs are against the wall, provide options and obtain results, because we understand that is what we would want if we needed help.

At the law offices of Steven R. Roach, we understand that people facing criminal charges are going through a traumatic experience. Although no attorney can guarantee a specific result in a given case, we can and do promise to use all of our experience, knowledge and skills to protect you in this time of need.

From the earliest stages of your case, we work hard to protect your rights and secure your future. We carefully listen and analyze your side of the case, making sure there is a clear understanding of the facts. We demand from the prosecution all evidence in their possession and control. We review police reports, examine search warrants, draft and argue necessary motions to protect your constitutional rights, seek the suppression of illegally obtained evidence, make pre-trial motions to dismiss excessive or unfounded charges and leave no stone uncovered in our mission to protect your life, liberty and future.

After our investigation is done, we can negotiate with the prosecution from a position of reason and strength. Using the experience gained from thousands of criminal law cases, we can pursue a wide range of measures to seek the best possible result in your case.

Throughout the course of our investigation, we meticulously prepare for the possibility of trial using resources like outside investigators and expert witnesses when necessary. We make pre-trial motions when appropriate to dismiss charges for lack of probable cause. If negotiations and pre-trial motions do not achieve the results we want, we are thoroughly prepared to advocate aggressively on your behalf at trial.
