Criminal Law


Criminal Law

This division handles a broad range of select client matters including misdemeanors & felonies, and at all stages including preliminary matters, plea negotiations, trial, and appellate matters. Defending the accused is a fundamental necessity to protecting the client, the client’s family, and our system of justice on the whole.

Until you speak with an attorney on your criminal matter you are reminded that you have a right to remain silent.You do not have to answer any questions for anyone without your attorney present. Anything you do say that can be used against you, will be used against you. If you cannot afford an attorney, in most cases, especially where you are facing imprisonment as punishment, you will be appointed an attorney.


Criminal Defense Services

The criminal law division of Panagopoulos Embry stands ready to defend you from the point at which you are merely under suspicion of a crime, and will stand with you at all levels of the criminal adjudication process.We are available nights and weekends to respond to your need for representation. If you or a loved one is charged with a crime or believe you are about to be charged with a crime; DO NOT WAIT, contact Panagopoulos Embry NOW!

Prospective criminal defense clients get complimentary 15 minute initial telephone conference; and in most cases, our usual fee for an in person office conference is waived.

At Panagopoulos Embry we zealously pursue the rights of the accused. The firm founder Dimitri Panagopoulos’ aggressive criminal defense strategies and investigations have resulted in outright dismissals, acquittals, and favorable plea bargains in many cases.

We believe that each case deserves utmost attention. A criminal matter is a personal matter, and is usually as unique as the person who stands accused. There is no cookie cutter defense that can be pulled off of a shelf and assigned to a client’s given matter. Each case requires careful analysis, investigation, and case development that in many cases will include coordination with forensic experts and investigators.
