Teamwork in Criminal Defense Representation

Our team’s frequent appearances in city, state, and federal courts have provided us with a knowledge base that enables us to serve as counsel for you at all stages of an investigation. This includes pre-charge, after an arrest, jury trial, appeal, and Habeas Corpus

Attorney Mills has been handling criminal matters in West Virginia since 1989. Our firm translates the skill and experience of our attorneys, legal assistants, investigators, and retained experts to bring you highly-qualified teamwork committed to helping you secure the best possible outcome.  Our dedication to our work on behalf of our clients is our calling.

Effective Assistance of Counsel 

The Sixth Amendment guarantees you the right to assistance of counsel. However, your choice of counsel will ultimately be the measure of whether you receive the full benefit of this constitutional right.

Effective assistance of counsel is essential in fighting criminal charges. In the realm of criminal defense, we believe effective assistance of counsel can be demonstrated in the following ways:

  • A not-guilty verdict returned by a jury of your peers;
  • Thorough investigation prior to a jury trial;
  • 24/7 access to live person contact with counsel and prompt return calls;
  • Clarity and understanding of the charges under investigation or in litigation;
  • The teamwork of four lawyers, three legal assistants, two investigators, and a host of contract forensic specialists, such as you will find at The Criminal Law Center.

The above characteristics have resulted in dozens of successful jury verdicts and thousands of cases resolved favorably for our clients over the last 30+ years, which is the strongest evidence of our effectiveness.
