Criminal Defense

Whether for a misdemeanor or felony criminal charge, an arrest can be intimidating. You may worry that a conviction could result in large fines, affect your future ability to get a job or an apartment, and most of all, threaten your very freedom. At the law office of Chris Villemarette, Trial Lawyer, we understand this and we work diligently to protect your rights.

We know that innocent people are sometimes charged with serious crimes, simply because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time. We also know that people can make mistakes, but are overcharged with felony charges when a misdemeanor charge is more appropriate for the infraction. If you face felony or misdemeanor criminal charges, you want a lawyer who knows how to conduct vigorous negotiations with prosecutors, and will go to trial to protect your rights.
