Contact Scott Hamblin, Criminal Defense Attorney

If you have recently been charged with a crime or are under investigation for alleged criminal activity, you will need to consult with an experienced criminal defense lawyer.

Do not make any statements to the police or prosecuting attorneys before talking to your own lawyer. Talking can only hurt your case, as it will be used against you. Speaking first to a criminal lawyer will help you build a case, and speaking to one with experience will help you build a strong one.

He’s On Your Side

Scott will keep you up to date on all important developments in your case. When you need to get in touch with him, he will be there to answer your call or return it promptly.
