Palmetto Criminal Defense Lawyer

Being questioned by the police in connection with a crime can be frightening, and being arrested is downright terrifying. What will happen next? Will you go to jail? How should you plead at trial? Will you lose your job, your license, your reputation? These are all questions that may be going through your head when you are charged with a crime.

To get the answers you need, talking to a criminal law attorney is the smart choice. A lawyer can review your situation, help you to make strategic choices moving forward, and advocate for you every step of the way as you cope with criminal charges. Katz & Phillips, P.A. represents clients accused of crimes throughout the Palmetto area and we are here to help you.

Why Katz & Phillips?

Your lawyer helps to make sure the justice system works the way it should when you have been charged with breaking the law. In the United States, there is a presumption of innocence. There is a Fifth Amendment protection against self-incrimination, a Fourth Amendment protection against illegal searches and a guarantee of due process under the law. Your attorney helps to make sure your rights are protected and that you make the choices that will help ensure a fair and just outcome in your case.

At Katz & Phillips, P.A., we take our role as defense lawyers very seriously. Our efforts for our clients have been recognized by clients and peers alike. Our attorneys are:
