facing serious felony charges in both state and federal trial
and appellate courts. We represent people facing felony
charges from drugs to murder, and have developed an
emphasis on sex crimes (both adult and child offenses).
In our commercial litigation practice, we represent small
business owners facing "bet the business" litigation
prospects if the opposing side wins.
With our family law practice, we cherish the opportunity to
represent parents, especially fathers, who need a divorce
and want to keep or get custody of their kids.
SEXUAL OFFENSES, CHILD
If you have been accused of sexual contact or indecency toward a child, your credibility will be in question. The
police, the prosecutor, and the general public will probably believe the child no matter what the background or facts
of the case might be. As a society, we want to protect children, and that is appropriate. But we also need to protect
the rights of people accused of child sex offenses.
Have you been questioned? Have you been arrested? Whether or not you feel you are innocent of the accusations,
you need a lawyer experienced in cases like yours. Depending on the facts of the case, we will work to keep charges
from being filed, to have the charges dismissed, to obtain a fair plea bargain that limits the damages you are facing,
or to fight the charges in a court of law.
We have represented people in a wide range of cases, including but not limited to:
-Adult Sexual Fondling of a Child
-Aggravated Sexual Assault (child rape)
-Indecency with a Child (sexual contact or sexual exposure)
-Teacher and Student Sexual Contact
We have found through experience that child sex offense charges are often based on false allegations. We have won
dismissals in cases in which detailed descriptions of the location and of the accused person proved to be inaccurate.
Some allegations prove to be physically impossible. Others are based on peer pressure, pressure from adults, an
attempt to avoid discipline, a desire for attention or money.
Whatever the reason for false charges, contact child sex abuse defense lawyer Thomas A. Martin for a thorough
investigation and an aggressive defense.
If there is any merit at all to the charges, your attorney will continue to vigorously defend your rights while working
to limit the consequences.
