- Explain potential penalties and your options for responding to criminal charges
- Help decide how to plea
- Negotiate a plea bargain with a prosecutor on your behalf
- Explore diversion programs to potentially avoid a criminal record
- Represent you in court, raising affirmative defenses or trying to introduce reasonable doubt
Our firm has an attorney who is Board Certified in Criminal Defense and all of our criminal defense lawyers have a long history of helping clients resolve cases.

Family Law Issues
Divorce, custody, paternity, adoption – all of these are situations where your private family relationships will be affected by court action. You have a lot at stake when a judge presides over any aspect of your relationship with your family. Our attorneys will help clients protect the relationships that are most important to them.
Often, in family law cases, finding alternatives to litigation is preferable. Not only can you save costs by avoiding litigation, but you can also avoid a contentious legal battle that increases stress on everyone. Milligan, Beswick, Levine & Knox, LLP family law attorneys have helped many clients negotiate solutions in mediation or during a collaborative divorce. Although we are experienced litigators ready to represent you in court, we are dedicated to helping you to find the best way to resolve your family law case with an outcome that works for you.
Getting Help after a Negligence-Induced Injury
Suffering an injury or losing a loved one in an accident can change the course of your life forever. Often, there is significant financial hardship caused by an accident that interferes with work ability and leads to costly medical bills. The law says you should be made whole or compensated by those who cause your accident through a failure to fulfill a legal duty. However, it is up to you to take legal action.
Frequently, injury cases can be resolved out of court with negotiation. Our attorneys have helped many clients in the Highland area to deal with an insurance company and negotiate a settlement. If your case does proceed to trial, we are prepared to help you obtain evidence showing the defendant is responsible and we are ready to present that evidence to a jury in a compelling way.
