From a basic traffic violation or common misdemeanor to the most serious felony offense, it’s important to respond quickly to avoid the worst outcome of an arrest.

Aggressive Criminal Defense Against Criminal Charges

Based in Morgantown, West Virginia, the law firm of Brewer & Giggenbach PLLC represents adult clients in Monongalia County and throughout West Virginia, including students who have been accused of any state or federal crime. The firm’s attorneys will investigate and defend cases involving:

  • DUI/DWI (see below)

  • Drug Possession or Distribution
  • Office of Student Life or Office of Student Conduct
    University Expulsion, Suspension or Student Discipline
  • Shoplifting, Theft or Burglary
  • Domestic Violence (such as battery, protective orders)
  • Traffic Violations (that put drivers’ license at risk)
  • White Collar Crime (such as embezzlement, fraud)
  • Sex Crimes (including rape, sexual abuse)
  • Serious Felonies (including robbery, murder, vehicular homicide, kidnapping)

A DUI arrest has far-reaching implications and requires aggressive representation. Conviction on a first offense can result in at least 24 hours in jail, a criminal record, fines and license suspension of 90 days to six months. West Virginia has a 10-year look-back, and a second offense carries severe punishment – six months to one year in jail and license revocation up to 10 years.
