Federal and State Criminal Defense
Being accused of crime is a frightening experience. Between the accused and the overpowering forces of prosecution stands but a single bulwark—the criminal defense attorney. Rich Rosenthal attorneys have been defending persons facing criminal prosecutions, upholding the constitution, and ensuring the fair administration of justice for more than 30 years.
In hundreds of trials before judges and juries in state and federal courts, Rich Rosenthal attorneys have defended against charges ranging from drunk driving to embezzlement to capital murder. Some of our cases have gained great notoriety; others have been handled without fanfare. In every case, from misdemeanor to murder, we pride ourselves on thorough investigation, meticulous preparation, and persuasive courtroom advocacy. Our efforts have been rewarded—sometimes in pretrial negotiations, other times at trial, and on several occasions in the appellate courts—by the vindication of the principles of our Bill of Rights and our system of justice, and with gratifying frequency, by the exoneration of decent, law-abiding fellow-citizens.
From street crime to white-collar crime, we believe that every person facing prosecution deserves fair and impartial treatment and effective representation by a devoted advocate. We do our best to see that Rich Rosenthal clients facing criminal charges get nothing less.
