We Defend People, Not Cases

If you have been charged with a crime or are simply being investigated, you need a law firm that understands the human element as well as the legal aspect of criminal defense.  Being accused of a crime doesn't turn you into anything less than the person you were before the arrest.  From the second you walk into our office, you are and will remain presumed innocent during the entire criminal court process, and you will always receive the most professional, discreet and best defense we can provide. 

In addition to a thorough legal analysis and investigation of your case, part of your defense will consist of a detailed presentation of you as a human being, a person with a life, a family and a future.  We will explore with you the unique circumstances of who you are in an effort to find the one, two or twenty things about you that might help in the fight to avoid a criminal conviction or argue for an appropriate sentence.  

Don't trust your future to an attorney who thinks of you as a "defendant."  Call Catalano & Carpenter LLP today for a professional, personal and free criminal case consultation.   

Attorneys & Counselors at Law



We will always fight for the best outcome for you. Sometimes that requires a plea; but sometimes that requires a trial. There are a lot of attorneys who steer their clients away from a trial to avoid the work. We are not those attorneys. We begin preparing your case for trial the first time we meet you.  

The attorneys of Catalano & Carpenter aren't afraid of trials.  We've done trials.  We've won trials.  We know how to do it again.
