Assertive Norman attorney vigorously defends the rights of the accused
When you're accused of committing a crime, you have certain fundamental rights, but you need strong legal counsel to ensure that authorities honor them. At Pierce Law Firm in Norman, we have battled on behalf of Oklahomans for more than 25 years, obtaining justice for defendants in a full range of criminal cases. No matter what the specific circumstances might be, prosecutors know our record and have seen how hard we fight. We use this reputation to give our clients the best chance at a favorable outcome, whether that occurs through a dismissal, acquittal or favorable plea. Even if you think the evidence against you is overwhelming, we can identify potential defenses that other lawyers miss.
Skillful advocate handles all types of felony cases
Felony charges can lead to prison terms that last decades, so you need a skilled attorney in your corner who has a proven record of success in cases involving serious crimes such as:
- Murder -- We understand how to handle high-pressure litigation and deliver the strongest possible argument when someone is accused of murder
- Sex Crimes -- Attorney Terry Pierce has the skill and background to demonstrate the truth in sex crime cases that involve conflicting claims.
- Aggravated assault and battery -- When serious bodily harm occurs after a physical altercation, authorities often fail to see important facts. Our firm presents a thorough narrative of what actually occurred.
From the outset of your case, we make every effort to safeguard your rights and explain your options clearly and completely.
Dedicated lawyer assists individuals accused of drug crimes
People who are accused of drug offenses need comprehensive support from a seasoned legal counselor. Whether you have been charged with the possession, sale or manufacture of drugs, an effective defender can combat questionable evidence and improper enforcement tactics. Though possession of a personal amount of marijuana is a misdemeanor, other substances trigger felony charges and higher sentences. Prosecutors can bring trafficking charges that carry severe punishments even when a massive amount of drugs is not involved. In every case, we aggressively pursue an appropriate outcome, which can include adjudication in a drug court or treatment in place of incarceration.
Trustworthy counselor represents misdemeanor defendants
Someone who is convicted of a misdemeanor can be punished by a jail sentence of up to one year, a fine or other types of sanctions. Misdemeanors such as assault, theft and driving under the influence of alcohol also give you a criminal record. Our firm takes these matters extremely seriously and conducts a thorough investigation to attack the charges brought against you.
Experienced attorney advises on sealing and expungement of criminal record items
A criminal record can haunt you for the rest of your life. Even when the alleged misconduct is not especially serious, you might be prevented from getting the home or job that you want. Our firm helps Oklahomans expunge arrest records on misdemeanors and nonviolent felonies so that they can put their problems behind them. Depending on your specific situation, we will determine whether you fall within one of the expungement categories. For example, if you received a deferred sentence and completed your probation more than two years ago, we can explain how to clear your record.
