Paul Looney and Clay Conrad have been in partnership since 1997 and have worked with thousands of cases from the most simple to the most serious. Wade Smith joined our team as a shareholder attorney in 2020.  As Criminal Defense Trial Lawyers, we have spent thousands of hours in the courtroom and create winning defense strategies in an effort to have cases dismissed or charges reduced so clients won’t have to do as much, if any, prison time.

We offer criminal defense to those accused of crimes in all 50 states and federal courts. We have practiced in Federal Court in Alabama, California, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma and South Carolina and are available to practice in every state.

As criminal defense trial lawyers, we are well respected and known by attorneys, judges, justice advocates, and prosecutors for our tenacity, reputation, legal expertise, court room deliberation and results. We have numerous victories in some of the most difficult cases and against the toughest prosecutors.

Straight Forward Answers

Our firm of dedicated and experienced attorneys and staff members work together to represent clients in the areas of criminal, personal injury, family, civil and appellate law. A criminal record can impact not only a person’s life but also the lives of his or her family. We work intensively on every case and take personal care to ensure open, honest and upfront communication.

We work aggressively to prove innocence and start working on cases immediately. Every day that goes by, the prosecution is working to build a stronger offense. Aggressive criminal lawyers are needed to defend a person’s rights and work on the defense before the case reaches the courtroom.

The criminal justice system in the United States puts the accused person at a disadvantage. Presumed innocent until proven guilty is good in theory, but the reality is that jurors often presume guilt and prosecutors start preparing their case before a person has an opportunity to hire a lawyer.

Most people need the services of an attorney sometime during their life. Hiring a criminal trial lawyer with the right knowledge, skills and experience makes a difference for the security of a person, his or her family, business and future. When a person is charged with or arrested for a criminal offense, it is crucial to retain an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.

As one of our clients (DF) recently said, “Having an attorney while being questioned never implies guilt.  It ensures an equal and fair questioning process AND ensures you don’t get railroaded.”
