Experienced Criminal Defense Attorneys Fighting for Your Rights
Attorney Mark B. Williams is well-respected within the legal community for his success defending people charged with sexual assault, including child sex crimes and date rape. As a former lawyer and investigator for Department of Social Services, he has handled both sides of these cases. He understands what the prosecution is looking for and he knows how to properly investigate a case. His experience helps our entire firm better defend against the following sex crimes:
- Date rape charges
- Sexual assault
- Sex abuse
- Domestic assault
- Internet sex crime allegations
- Online solicitation
- Internet porn distribution
- Statutory rape
- Possession of child pornography
- Solicitation of a minor
One area in which our firm focuses is date rape defense. In these cases, consent is an issue and our attorneys understand the important questions to ask. Did the complaining witness send signals of willingness to participate? Did the complaining witness simply suffer from remorse afterward? It is important to stress the intimacy of prior relationships in these cases. We will conduct a thorough investigation into the alleged sexual assault and the complaining witness in order to understand what really happened.
Child Sex Crimes
Some of the most difficult sexual assault cases involve children. Our firm is not afraid to ask the tough questions, look at a child's motivation and the influence of others on the investigation. We bring in experts, working with child psychologists and sexual assault nurse examiners. Reviewing the statements of the children, family members and other people involved, we will explore every angle as we build the best possible defense.
