Smart, Aggressive Defense Against North Dakota Criminal Charges

A criminal charge, no matter how small, should never be ignored or underestimated. The consequences of a criminal conviction can be steep, including jail time, expensive fines and community service, just to name a few.

But criminal convictions can also come with noncriminal consequences that last much longer than your sentence. A criminal record can make it much more difficult to find a job, to find a good place to live or to gain admission to college. For all these reasons and more, you need to face your charges head-on with the help of a skilled attorney like those at Pagel Hager Law Firm.

We can defend you against nearly any criminal charges you may be facing, including:

  • Driving under the influence (DUI)
  • Theft, robbery and shoplifting
  • Assault, battery, murder and other violent crimes
  • Sex crimes
  • Drug charges, including drug possession and distribution
  • Misdemeanors

You Have More Options Than You Realize

Prosecutors will try to scare you into pleading guilty because that is fastest and easiest for them. But don’t decide you are out of options before speaking to us. Depending on the facts of your case, we may be able to fight the charges, negotiate a much better plea deal, negotiate alternative sentencing options or get charges thrown out altogether.

The bottom line is simple: Don’t trust the words of someone who doesn’t have your best interests in mind. Instead, work with an aggressive attorney who will seek every opportunity to help you resolve your charges favorably.
