Criminal Defense Services in Panama City 

Serving Clients Throughout Bay, Calhoun, Jackson, Walton, Washington, Okaloosa, and Holmes Counties

Being accused of a crime puts your job, freedom, and future at risk. As the defendant in any criminal charge, you could be facing jail or prison time, significant fines, a lengthy and restrictive probation, and more. The prosecutor’s job is to work to obtain a conviction, however, the U.S. Constitution provides you with certain rights. Among these are the right to an attorney and to due process. Your attorney’s job is to defend you against charges that must be proven “beyond a reasonable doubt.” This gives your defense lawyer the opportunity to find ways to cast doubt on the state’s case and the evidence against you. 

Your selection of an attorney, therefore, is a major decision that can have a huge impact on the outcome of your case. When fighting criminal charges, you want a professional you can trust, someone who has experience and integrity in working for your best interests. At Hinson Law Offices, our criminal defense lawyers bring honesty, commitment, care, and skill to your matter. Our firm defends all types of crimes, ranging from simple misdemeanors to the most serious felonies and capital crimes. If you are under investigation by law enforcement or have already been charged, we advise that you seek our help as early as possible.
