The practice of criminal defense is both an art and a science. When you talk to Mr. Watkins after having been criminally charged, you are very likely going to be scared or confused about what got you into trouble. Mr. Watkins will start by listening to you, the client, to hear about the case directly from you. He will guide you through the process of making your court appearances, meticulously comb through the police reports and other evidence in your case and advise you honestly about what your options are.

Some cases are resolved through negotiations with the state, some are resolved by battling it out in court through statutory or constitutional defenses or at trial. A lawyer must inform you of any offers that have been made to resolve your case, but how to proceed with your case will always be your decision.

If you or someone you love has been arrested or charged with a crime, call Matthew Watkins today for a free consultation.


We’re here to help answer your questions and look forward to hearing from you.

“Matthew Watkins represented me in a restraining order case. I was the petitioner and we went to trial when the respondent contested the restraining order. Mr. Watkins understands the nature of domestic violence and was able to be a strong advocate for me in the courtroom. We were able to win my case. He clearly put a lot of time, thought, and energy into understand the ins and outs of my case. His attention to detail and ability to think quickly when new information is presented in the courtroom really impressed me. I feel very lucky to have worked with this man!”
