Steadfast Mississippi Defense Lawyer Provides Advocacy for Those Accused of Crimes

Dedicated Jackson criminal law attorney helps individuals facing jail time and fines

Being handcuffed by police and taken to jail is one of the most frightening circumstances that anyone can encounter, particularly if the charges are unfounded. Irvin Law, PLLC, in Jackson, represents clients throughout Mississippi in criminal matters that can lead to incarceration, fines, asset seizures, loss of privileges, revoked professional licenses and other negative outcomes. A former federal prosecutor, Charles Irvin has earned a reputation as an aggressive and professional champion for those under investigation and those who have been arrested and charged with felonies or misdemeanors.

Skilled counselor works to exonerate clients

Defendants found guilty of crimes face the loss of their freedom, money and livelihood, among other serious negative consequences for themselves and their families. We are able to develop complex defense, negotiation and trial strategies to safeguard clients’ constitutionally mandated due-process rights for felony and misdemeanor charges.

Mississippi attorney provides no-nonsense felony defense

You can be confident that our firm will provide strong representation if you have been charged with a felony, which can result in a long prison sentence. We handle cases involving:

  • Violent crimes, such as murder, manslaughter and rape
  • Drug trafficking crimes
  • Cyber or internet crimes
  • White collar crimes, such as embezzlement and fraud

Felony convictions become part of your permanent criminal record, so it’s essential you have a strong defense that will challenge the state’s evidence and procedures.

Accomplished law firm provides support for those charged with misdemeanors

Misdemeanors are less serious crimes that can result in a maximum of one year in jail and fines. Misdemeanors in Mississippi include:

  • Simple assault
  • Petty larceny
  • Resisting arrest
  • Possession of less than 30 grams of marijuana
  • Violating a restraining order

Each criminal allegation carries a specific evidentiary burden that authorities must prove and that requires a specialized set of defenses. Being well-versed in all aspects of felony and misdemeanor criminal law and experienced in dealing with tough opposition, attorney Charles Irvin will be with you each step of the way, before, during and after your day in court. We also handle post-conviction relief, such as appealing a conviction to a higher court with the goal of reducing or entirely eliminating a criminal sentence. 

Respected attorney protects the rights of juveniles arrested in Mississippi

Unless a serious felony is involved, people under the age of 18 who get in trouble with the law have their cases heard in the state’s youth courts where special rules apply, including the confidentiality of the proceedings. Juvenile offenses in Mississippi can result in a minor being declared a delinquent, although a judge is empowered to impose a criminal sentence depending upon the severity of the alleged offense and other factors. Either way, the outcome in youth court can have serious ramifications for the future of a young person. Our firm will take the necessary steps to address your family concerns and protect your child’s future.
