When you call Brevik Law, here's what you can expect:
- You will immediately be put in communication with an attorney that has
the experience, knowledge, and common sense needed to effectively defend
you against the charges that have been made in your name.
- We will focus on getting you results, and our approach is tailor made to

- At all times you will be treated as an equal - a partner in the plan and
actions taken on behalf of your defense.
At our firm, we are dedicated to serving individuals facing all types of
criminal charges, including:
Drinking and driving is a criminal offense under state law that can lead
to penalties ranging from time in jail to a license suspension. The penalties
will climb for each additional conviction that is sustained making it
important to defend against charges at all costs. For those that involve
certain factors such as causing an accident or leading to an injury or
death, the penalties can be substantially increased. It is wise to recognize
that these can be fought and this is often the best choice.
Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, you could be charged
with a misdemeanor or felony offense for the drug crime for which you
have been charged. This will be based on the amount of the drug, the type
of drug, the use of it and if you have any past convictions. It may include
the possession of a controlled substance, the sale or transportation.
This is a widespread occurrence that can happen amongst an individual
or on a global level.
From shoplifting, to burglary, to armed robbery there are a number of different
types of theft crimes and an equal number of penalties. The charges against
you will affect the severity of any punishment you receive if convicted.
Being convicted of a sex crime of any degree will automatically result
in mandatory registration as a national sex offender; other penalties
will be incurred as well. This covers a range of different crimes that
are sexual in nature and can constitute up to a felony offense.
There are several forms of violent crimes including assault, domestic violence
and murder. The circumstances surrounding a charge can vary and there
are many factors to take into consideration. Since these can be so drastically
different, there is no limit to the amount of penalties that can be faced,
with a murder in the first degree even punishable by life imprisonment.
As a federal offense, many white collar crimes will be tried at the federal
level - a higher level of the courts that will likely act more aggressively
against you in case proceedings. Penalties incurred at the federal level
will also be much more severe. White collar crimes include instances of
fraud, money launderings, embezzlement and similar charges. They often
occur in a business setting and leave many working class citizens as the
main suspect in a criminal case.
Almost all juvenile offenses are tried and handled in a separate court
system from the adult system. Therefore, your defense attorney should
be familiar with the proceedings and legalities of the juvenile court
system as well. The process and penalties for these situations will differ
but they can still lead to serious damage to an individual that is under
the adult age of 18.
Police officers will almost always make an arrest when domestic violence
allegations are made, whether or not it can be proven that the accusations
were true. A heated moment between relatives, a married couple or others
in a close relationship can become blown out of proportion when emotions are high.
Penalties of a Conviction
A criminal conviction, whether it is a misdemeanor or a felony charge can
leave you with serious consequence, including the following:
- Community service
- License suspension
These are only a few of the penalties that can be imposed if a guilty sentence
is given. You have the right to remain silent and this is something that
you should exercise. It is typical that law enforcement will attempt to
get you to say something.
