Criminal Defense


Being charged with a crime is a scary experience. It can leave you with a lot of questions and uncertainty about your future.

Whether you’ve been charged with a DUI or a more serious offense, it’s important to understand your charges and options for defending yourself. By hiring an attorney immediately after your arrest, you may be able to limit the damage caused by a conviction—or even avoid a conviction altogether.


When you’ve been charged with a crime,
you want an experienced attorney on your side.

At The Coggin Firm, we understand how confusing and intimidating the legal process can be when you’ve been charged with a crime. That’s why we work with you every step of the way to provide the guidance you need to make the strongest defense decisions possible. Our lawyers have successfully represented countless clients facing serious criminal offenses, often helping them avoid unnecessary penalties or a conviction.

John Coggin heads the criminal section of our firm. His years of experience in the courtroom and as a Circuit Court Judge provides you with the experience you need when facing the uncertainty of your case. 

We defend individuals charged with a wide range of crimes

To help you prepare the strongest defense possible, we carefully review your charges, the events leading up to them, and the officers’ actions before and after your arrest. Any information obtained during our detailed review will be used to apply pressure on the prosecution to offer a favorable plea deal or drop your charges altogether. If a plea deal is not in your best interest, we’ll develop an aggressive trial defense to disprove your charges.

If you have been charged with a crime, don’t wait to contact an attorney. There are several key steps that can be taken immediately after your arrest to dramatically improve your chances of avoiding a conviction.
