State and Federal Criminal Defense

criminal defense practice covers nearly every type of criminal charge. We represent people charged with
DUI/DWI as well as speeding and reckless driving. We also handle all
drug crime charges from possession to trafficking and cultivation to manufacturing.

In addition, theft crime defense is a part of our practice. We represent individuals charged with
fraud and additional types of
white collar crime.

Violent crimes defense comprises a large volume of our cases. As
prosecutors, we tried many serious violent crime cases, including those
involving the death penalty. Our experience with these cases is valuable
as we defend people charged with
sex crimes, assault, homicide, and
robbery and burglary. You can also retain us for representation with
persistent felony offender (PFO) cases.

  • Frank Mascagni III

    I tried a 5-6 week jury trial against Jason in a double homicide death penalty trial. He is a wonderful trial lawyer and as good on arguing evidence law as I have ever seen or practiced law against. I would recommend him as an extremely talented felony trial lawyer.
