No matter the charges our clients face, we are determined to help them obtain the best possible outcome.

What is a Defense Attorney?

A defense attorney is a legal professional who represents organizations or individuals that have been accused of committing a crime. They have a deep understanding of criminal law and courtroom procedures, and they use this knowledge to build a strong legal defense on behalf of their clients. They may work with investigators, gather and review evidence, interview potential witnesses, and negotiate with prosecutors in order to secure the best possible case result. Ultimately, the goal of criminal defense attorneys is to protect the freedom and rights of their clients and to support them in navigating the complex nature of the criminal justice system.

Our firm's lead attorney, Scott Hallauer, not only has 25 years of experience but also served as a prosecutor prior to becoming a trial attorney fighting on behalf of defendants. This has provided our legal team with a wealth of insight into how to create strong strategies to combat the prosecution's evidence and case against our clients. When your life and freedom are on the line, there is no better advocate to have on your side than a former prosecutor.

Why You Need Hallauer Law Firm on Your Side

Prosecution teams have years of experience and an in-depth understanding of the laws pertaining to your charges, and they know how to convince judges and juries that someone is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. It is important to have a legal advocate on your side who has just as much or more understanding, experience, and commitment to prove your innocence.
