Criminal Defense: Protecting Your Rights and Freedom

A criminal accusation can change your life. You may feel overwhelmed, frightened, and unsure of where to turn. We understand the high stakes in criminal cases and stand ready to provide the aggressive defense you need. Our criminal defense attorneys have represented clients that are facing a wide range of charges, including:

  • Drug charges, whether for possession, distribution, or trafficking, carry severe consequences. We help you understand your rights, explore options, and build a strong defense.

  • Assault and battery accusations can arise from various situations. We help you tell your side, building a robust defense to protect your rights and reputation.
  • Domestic violence charges affect family, career, and future. We handle these cases with sensitivity, prioritizing safety while protecting your rights.
  • Violating probation terms can lead to more penalties or jail time. We’ll explore options, negotiate with authorities, and try to minimize the consequences of the violation.
  • Traffic offenses may seem minor but can have significant penalties. We can challenge the evidence against you and seek favorable outcomes.

We know every criminal case is unique, and we take the time to listen to your side of the story. We thoroughly investigate the evidence against you, looking for weaknesses in the prosecution’s case and opportunities to seek a dismissal or a reduction of charges. Our goal is to minimize the impact of criminal charges on your life and help you move forward confidently.

Family Law: Guiding You Through Life's Challenges

Family law disputes can be emotionally charged and deeply personal. Whether you are going through a divorce, negotiating child custody arrangements, or seeking to modify an existing court order, you need an attorney to hear your concerns and fight for your best interests.

At Buczek Carpenter, PC, we acknowledge the profound significance of familial legal battles. We recognize that the outcomes reached within family court can reverberate throughout every facet of your life – from the dynamics of your relationships to the stability of your finances and the shape of your future. With this awareness, we approach each case with a blend of compassion and unwavering determination to protect you and your rights.

Because every family is unique, we prioritize establishing a deep connection with our clients. We will actively listen to your concerns, empathize with your struggles, and comprehend the intricacies of your situation. By doing so, we gain insight into your needs and aspirations, which enables us to create a tailored legal strategy that aligns with your objectives.

Our family law attorneys have experience handling a variety of issues, including:

  • Divorce: If you are starting to consider a divorce or your spouse served you with divorce papers, you need an attorney who will protect your rights and advocate for your interests. 
  • Child custody and visitation: Child custody and visitation disputes can be some of family law’s most emotional and contentious issues. Your lawyer can provide objectivity and protect your interests.
  • Child support: Both parents are legally obligated to support their children financially, but determining an appropriate child support amount can be complex. 
  • Spousal support (alimony): Spousal support or maintenance can be a contentious issue in divorce cases. We’ll be on your side, working to obtain a fair outcome.
  • Property division: Dividing property can be one of a divorce’s most complex and contested aspects. We can help you identify and value your assets, negotiate a fair division of property, and protect your financial interests throughout the process.
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements: Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can help couples protect their assets and clarify their financial obligations if divorce occurs. 
  • Adoptions: Adopting a child can be a joyful and life-changing experience, but the legal process can be complex and overwhelming. 
  • Protective orders: Sometimes, protective orders are necessary. We can help you get one, even a military protective order, if the situation warrants that kind of protection.

We understand that going to court can be stressful and time-consuming. Whenever possible, we seek to resolve family law disputes through negotiation and mediation, which can save you time, money, and emotional distress.
