Discuss your case directly with Michael J. Skinner, an experienced criminal defense attorney. Let him evaluate the particular facts of your case and craft a defense best suited to your specific situation. Hiring effective representation early in the criminal process will help ensure your rights are protected at each stage of the criminal case, including emergency bond hearings, preliminary hearings, arraignment, pre-trial motion hearings, through trial.

Michael J. Skinner’s aggressive approach to fighting for his clients is based on conducting a thorough investigation, filing and litigating innovative pre-trial motions, and preparing meticulously for trial. An aggressive fight to dismiss the charges and suppress evidence during all pre-trial stages of the case often leads to the best negotiations to avoid trial. When the prosecutor has insufficient evidence the best result is getting the charges completely dismissed.
