Criminal Defense

The attorneys of James McElroy & Diehl have been recognized by their peers as outstanding in the area of Criminal Defense. We have former State and Federal prosecutors with extensive trial experience in both State and Federal Courts.

Our work includes representation during the investigative stages where we sometimes head off indictment or minimize charges by persuasive and effective advocacy for our clients.

When charges are initiated by prosecutors, we continue to investigate thoroughly, obtaining and evaluating the government’s evidence, exploring and fully evaluating potential defenses and challenging the government’s case with motions.

Our attorneys are recognized for expertise in trial and win criminal cases in the courtroom. And when trial is too great a risk, we seek effective negotiated resolutions (plea agreements) and persuasive sentencing advocacy to limit the damage.
