Criminal Defense

The attorneys at Knight & Cerritelli, LLC, know from experience that people are wrongfully accused, that sometimes good people do bad things and that often the punishment does not fit the crime.

A well-meaning lawyer is simply not good enough. Effective criminal defense means more than just negotiating plea deals. It means using skills that have been honed over the years. It means maintaining a strong work ethic and developing a reputation for diligence, preparation, and a willingness and ability to fight in order to protect clients’ rights and liberty.
