What Is Criminal Law?

Criminal law is a branch of the law that centers on crimes that are committed against public authority. It differs from civil law, which involves crimes people commit against each other and not necessarily the public. For instance, murder is covered under criminal law because it runs against the interest of the public even though it was a crime that was committed against a person(s). Criminal law, also known as penal law, sets an established code to be followed by citizens. It is therefore the foundation of the legal system in its entirety. It is also used by law enforcement, courts, and legal representatives as a means to function.
Some of the following offenses fall under the criminal law category:
  • Assault and Battery
  • Domestic Violence
  • Stalking
  • Kidnapping and False Imprisonment
  • Sexual Battery
  • Lewd and Lascivious Acts
  • Arson and Criminal Mischief
  • Burglary and Trespassing
  • Theft and Robbery
  • Forgery and Counterfeiting
  • Drug Offenses

From Charge to Trial

The process of a criminal charge proceeding can be terrifying, especially if it is your first charge. There are two things that we focus on throughout the entire development: keeping you out of jail and saving your name from a criminal conviction. Every case is different so in order to be successful in our goals, we dedicate our time to your case. Our experience allows us to tailor our practice to meet your needs. The lawyer you choose to represent you in your criminal charge case may affect the outcome.
