Help for Clients Who Have Been Accused of a Crime in West Virginia

criminal defense in West Virginia

It only takes a moment for the course of your life to change forever. Some people make mistakes or use poor judgment, others are simply in the wrong place at the wrong time—and many will make the cases against them stronger and stronger in the days following the event. With so much at stake, criminal offenders should always speak with an attorney about their options as soon as possible after their arrest.

Attorney William “Ty” Nestor began his legal career as a court-appointed criminal defense attorney. Not only did this experience allow him to serve those who were most in need of his help, he also gained extensive knowledge of many different types of criminal cases. Our firm is ready and able to offer legal counseling on a variety of criminal law matters, including:

  • Felony.
  • Misdemeanor.
  • DUI.
  • Drug Offenses.

Providing Aggressive Defenses to DUI and Criminal Charges

As soon as an arrest happens, it threatens not only your freedom, but also your future, your family, your ability to earn a living, and even your mental and physical health. The second you are arrested a prosecution team assembles to file charges and build the evidence against you. When so many people are positioned against you, you need an experienced attorney to fight on your behalf.

When you retain attorney Ty Nestor for your case, he will do everything in his power to protect you, such as:

  • Fight to dismiss or reduce charges. Our firm always starts by conducting an immediate and thorough investigation into the charges against you. Based on the facts of your case, we can determine whether there are legal grounds to have the charges against you dropped or reduced, and we will work extremely hard to make sure that incarceration is avoided by all means permissible under state and federal law.
  • Protect your rights. Many offenders make the mistake of giving the police a full account of “their side” of the story, thinking that simply explaining what happened will be enough to get the charges against them dropped. Unfortunately, all the information you willingly give to the police can be used against you in court. Our law firm will deal with the police, federal agents, and prosecutors on your behalf, answering their questions and protecting your interests. We also ensure that all evidence in your case is obtained legally, and if it is not, can move to dismiss the evidence and charges as a result.
  • Defend you in court. If you have been indicted and the charges against you cannot be dropped, we will create a trial defense strategy that has the best chance of success and the minimum possible effect on your future. We can work toward acquittal, negotiate a favorable plea agreement, and fight for a reduced sentence when a conviction cannot be avoided.

No matter what offense has been committed, we always offer our clients an honest assessment of their cases, ensuring that all viable options are explored. We always return calls and emails promptly, allowing you to build your defense as quickly and thoroughly as possible.
