Criminal Defense

Criminal Defense Lawyer

While The Law Office of RC Pate mainly focuses on DWI, I also handle all criminal matters. I’ll use my skills to help you or a loved one with whatever situation you may be in – from traffic tickets to murders (and everything in between).  

A great criminal defense has to be founded on knowledge of the rules of evidence and a mind for trial. I prepare every case as if I were going to try the case. The decision of whether to ultimately take a plea deal is always my client's, but I never prepare as if that is how the case will play out.
