Criminal Defense

The defense of those accused with crimes involves experience, hard work, perseverance and a sincere interest in helping people who find themselves in unexpected and difficult situations.  It has been a hallmark of this law firm to jump on a criminal matter when the phone rings and a client or potential client has been arrested or an investigation commenced against the client.  And we do so with non-judgmental advice. 

The firm handles routine motor vehicle offenses and everything up to homicide. Attorney Largay has handled a number of murder trials involving very technical forensic issues, graphic crime scenes and emotionally-charged situations.  A confident attitude and calm, rational demeanor are essential to this type of work - consider that the government which prosecutes criminal allegations has resources and a power that is unlimited and often goes unchecked. 

Defending these cases is about more than getting someone "off" - it's about protecting individual civil rights, defending the Constitution and advocating for fair treatment through the bail, plea negotiations, trials, appeals and probation processes.  Without aggressive and effective legal talent, the unrepresented or poorly represented folks in the criminal arena often are punished more harshly and unfairly in comparison to their fellow citizens. 

We have handled every manner of OUI/OAS/OAR/HO case, as well as assaults, drug possession and trafficking, crimes against people/property, and white-collar crimes. Our criminal practice extends to every jail and courthouse from the Kennebec River in Augusta, Maine, eastward and northerly to the Maine-Canadian borders. We handle such matters with care, coordination, confidence and the utmost in confidentiality.

    You have the RIGHT to remain silent.  You have the RIGHT to confront and cross-examine witnesses against you.  You have the RIGHT to be presented with and challenge the physical & testimonial evidence against you.  You have the RIGHT in most cases to a Jury Trial by your peers. 

      And you have the RIGHT to effective legal Counsel.
