Greg McCollum, At the Complete Legal Defense Team: We Defend the Accused who Have a Lot To Lose.  Being accused of a crime is frightening.  You experience public shame and humiliation and do not know where to turn for help. We are experienced and knowledgeable and will take immediate steps to begin repairing your life. We evaluate how the allegation affects you and your life and your family.  We examine how it affects your reputation, how it affects your life, and how it will affect you financially. Believe it or not, many people who are arrested and charged with crimes are innocent. Usually everyone seems to assume that they are guilty or they would not have been arrested. Our clients are often shocked at how easy it is to be arrested with very little police investigation. Sometimes a single statement by one person is enough to cause charges to be made and an arrest warrant to be issued. Many times people do not know an arrest is imminent. They are shocked when police show up at their work place or home and they are immediately handcuffed in front of everyone and taken to jail. These are things we deal with daily. At the Complete Legal Defense Team all we do is represent people who are accused of crimes. We focus on three main areas of defense: MAJOR FELONIES, DUI, and TRAFFIC COURT. Our goal from the outset is to examine the facts and circumstances completely. Usually there is evidence not gathered or overlooked because it points to innocence or lack of guilt. We look for evidence which indicates our client was not there, did not do what was alleged or was justified in his or her actions. We defend and have successfully defended every type of Major Felony. We have defended clients for Murder, Kidnapping, Sexual Assault, Burglary, Robbery, Assault, Drug Trafficking and more. We have successfully defended clients for DUI.  When a person is charged with a DUI and someone is killed or seriously injured, even a passenger, the driver is charged with Felony DUI.  We have defended at trial all of the type cases listed and many others.

We have the ability, resources, skill and experience to defend every type of serious felony to less serious, but important cases like DUI.  In addition to defense of serious felony cases and DUI, we also regularly represent and help people in traffic court, so you can avoid having to appear in traffic court.

Whether you have been charged with a serious offense or something minor, if you would like help contact our office now.
