Criminal Defense

Being accused of a crime does not mean that you have no rights, and The Law Office of Matthew L. Collins will fight hard to protect your right to be considered innocent until proven guilty. We at The Law Office of Matthew L. Collins have spent time volunteering for the Kentucky Innocence Project, and working for those accused of crimes they did not commit. We have worked with clients who have been accused of a wide range of crimes, from false accusations of murder to misdemeanor assault, and we understand the gravity and seriousness of every allegation of criminal activity.

When you are accused of a crime, it is vital to retain an attorney early in the process, before even posting bond, if possible. Your attorney can not only help you in the litigation of your case, but can negotiate bond conditions and the timing of your criminal case to your benefit, if hired early enough in the process. Negotiating the conditions under which a criminal defendant is released on bond can have a huge effect on not only the availability of bond, but also the cost and restrictions the defendant will have to live under while out on bond.

The Law Office of Matthew L. Collins can help you even when you plan on pleading guilty to the allegations against you, by negotiating with prosecutors and arguing for the least restrictive punishment possible under the law. We have extensive experience in these negotiations, and have repeatedly gotten favorable results for our clients where extensive jail time or fines were otherwise possible.

If you have been accused of a crime, The Law Office of Matthew L. Collins will provide the best, most friendly, and most aggressive defense possible. Consultations on criminal matters are free, and we look forward to assisting you with your case.
