Criminal Law

Attorney David M. Todaro believes everyone deserves a good defense against felony and misdemeanor charges. Crimes include both felonies and misdemeanors. Criminal charges can originate at the local, state and/or federal levels. It is important to seek help from an experienced defense attorney if you are facing criminal charges. Attorney Todaro is an experienced and knowledgeable defense attorney that handles many types of criminal charges including:

DUI/OVI
If you have been accused of drunk driving, your driver’s license, freedom and future are on the line. When faced with an OVI charge, time is of the essence. Never underestimate the charges and consequences you could be facing. It is important to hire an experienced defense lawyer who can stand up for your rights in court and walk you through the legal process.

Assault and Battery
Assault and battery are two separate charges even though they are commonly grouped together. Assault is the attempt or threat to do harm to another. Battery occurs when there is physical contact between the attacker and the victim.

Domestic Violence
Domestic violence encompasses a broad scope of illegal behavior, such as assault, battery, or other threatening behavior involving a family or household member.

Drug Possession/Trafficking
The possession of a controlled substance is a criminal offense. Whether the crime is charged as a misdemeanor or felony will usually depend on the type and amount of drug that was found. Illegal drug possession is punishable by probation or imprisonment, and fines. Sentencing can also include community service and mandatory drug treatment and depending on the circumstances of the case, your driver’s license may be suspended and your assets seized.

Theft
The crime of theft involves the taking of a person’s real or personal property, labor, or money without their consent. Theft charges can range form misdemeanors to felonies and can involve federal charges if the theft involved interstate commerce, federal agencies or occurred on government property.

Burglary
Burglary is the criminal act of entering a residence or other enclosed property through force, stealth or deception with the purpose of committing another crime.

Expungement
If, in the past, you have been arrested, charged, or convicted of a criminal offense, then you may possess a criminal record that has caused a negative impact to various aspects of your life. Fortunately, expungement is a legal process you may be able to use to your advantage. Expungement is the sealing or destroying of a prior criminal record, and can be utilized to eliminate the record of many criminal offenses, including some felonies. Once an expungement has been received, you will no longer have to disclose the incident as part of your criminal history.
