Criminal Law

When you are charged with a crime there are many complicated stages of the legal process that can have serious impacts on your life.  Fearnow Law is dedicated to serving as your advocate, and will ensure that your rights are protected at all stages of the criminal process, including:

  • Representing you at bail hearings

  • Arguing pretrial motions

  • Negotiating with the State

  • Advocating for you during trial


Bail Hearings

Shortly after being arrested, you will appear before a commissioner who will determine your initial bail status. Sometimes, a Commissioner sets a monetary amount to satisfy your release. Other times, a Commissioner decides to hold you without bail.


When this happens, you will appear before a judge who will review your bail status. Having an attorney at your bail hearing is invaluable. Fearnow Law will advocate for you by:

  • Making legal arguments about the strength of your case

  • Highlighting positive reasons for why you should be released

  • Driving Without a License

  • Driving on a Suspended License

  • Knowingly Driving Without Insurance

  • Represent you at trial
