Aggressive Sex Crime Defense Attorney

At the O’Malley Law office, we are very familiar with the laws relating to sex crimes. We understand how powerful words are and how they can be used against a person. Recently, we won a case where the defendant was accused of a sex crime against a girl she mentored. The case was based solely on the girl’s word. By the grace of God, we were able to reveal the young woman’s hidden motives to the jury. Being accused of a sex crime is an overwhelming experience. You need someone who is on your side and who will be with you when everyone else steps away. If you are seeking a Christian attorney, we can stand by your side and fight the allegations against you. Remember, it is important to remain silent and not to discuss the details of your case with anyone or try and prove you are innocent to the police. Both of these can be damaging to your case and can hinder us from forming the best defense possible.
