Edmond Criminal Defense Attorneys: We Can Help You Fight for Your Freedom!

Getting arrested and being charged with a crime is often a major shock for people. At Fassio Law, our experienced Edmond criminal defense lawyers have helped many people throughout Oklahoma County stand up for themselves in court. Our team can analyze the facts and circumstances surrounding your case and advise you on the best legal strategy moving forward, whether that is seeking the best possible deal with prosecutors or taking your chances at trial.

We Handle a Wide Range of Criminal Cases

Even a misdemeanor conviction can carry some amount of jail time. And any criminal conviction will affect your daily life in a number of ways, from applying for a job to attending college.  Fortunately, you do have options when it comes to fighting a criminal charge. Fassio Law can represent you in a variety of criminal matters. Some of the areas we specialize in include:

  • Assault/Domestic Violence: Assault and battery is always a serious charge, especially when the accuser is a family member or intimate partner. A first conviction for domestic violence is a misdemeanor (unless there is a weapon or other aggravating factor), while a second or subsequent case is prosecuted as a felony.
  • Drug Charges: Possession of any controlled substance, including marijuana, is illegal in Oklahoma. Drug charges are commonly based on the amount of a controlled substance involved. And it is not uncommon for people to face charges of possession with intent to distribute or drug trafficking even if they have never actually sold any controlled substances.
  • DUI: Like all states, Oklahoma has strict laws against driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In some cases, a person may be convicted of DUI with a blood-alcohol content as low as 0.05 percent, or even if you refused to take the breathalyzer test. A conviction may lead not only to jail time, but the loss of your driver's license and additional fines and consequences.
  • Gun Charges: Oklahoma citizens may have a Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. But that does not mean anyone can possess a gun. For example, it is against state and federal law for many convicted felons to possess a firearm. And if a gun is used to commit another crime, such as robbery, that leads to elevated criminal charges.
  • Expungements: The legal process known as an expungement essentially "erases" an arrest or conviction from a person's criminal record. Expunges are regulated by state law.
  • White Collar Crimes: Just because a criminal offense does not involve allegations of physical violence, that does not mean you should not take the charges seriously. Many white collar crimes like counterfeiting, embezzlement, fraud, and forgery carry penalties that are just as severe--if not more so--than crimes of violence.
  • Theft Charges (Larceny & Burglary): A person accused of a theft offense, or any offense, is innocent until proven guilty. You have the right to have an attorney represent you to explore all possible defenses against theft charges. Take advantage of that right!
  • Probation Violations: Probation is a court-ordered period of supervision—it is an alternative to incarceration. A probation violation occurs when an individual is alleged to have failed to follow the rules of their probation.

You Do Have Options for an Edmond Criminal Defense Lawyer

Every criminal case is different. At Fassio Law, we sometimes find that the police or prosecutors made a key mistake in preparing their case, which we can use to obtain a reduced sentence or even the dismissal of charges. In other cases, our clients are simply looking to negotiate a fair deal, that is structured to take their priorities into account, so they can put the entire matter behind them as quickly as possible.

Whatever your situation, it is important to know that you have options. Our Edmond criminal defense lawyers can assist you in exploring those options and determining the best course of action for you and your family. Contact Fassio Law today at (405) 593-8444 to schedule a case assessment.
