Honolulu Criminal Defense Lawyer
At the Law Offices of Scot Stuart Brower in Honolulu, Hawaii, we aggressively defend clients charged with a variety of federal and state crimes, including both felony and misdemeanor crimes. Criminal charges often involve actions on the part of police and investigators that concern constitutional rights: how evidence is collected, a search warrant executed, a car stop conducted, or an arrest made can determine what evidence is allowed or excluded at trial. As your attorney, Scot Stuart Brower meticulously reviews the actions of police and investigators. Our office conducts our own investigation as well in order to identify alternative suspects and leads ignored by prosecutors.
If you have been arrested or charged with a crime, or even if you think you may be under investigation for a crime, contact criminal defense lawyer Scot Stuart Brower today to schedule a free, confidential consultation to discuss your defense options.
Clients charged with DUI, drug possession, drug trafficking, assault or theft, rape, sexual assault, statutory rape, or child molestation can count on criminal defense attorney Scot Stuart Brower to zealously safeguard and defend their rights. Overly-aggressive law enforcement professionals do violate search and seizure procedures to strengthen their case against you, and experienced counsel can advocate for you and level the playing field.
Temporary restraining orders can create a number of difficulties and legal complications for the person against whom they are issued. If the person you live with is granted a restraining order against you, you will be required to vacate the premises, avoid future contact with them, and relinquish any firearms you own. As your attorney, can challenge the grounds for issuing the restraining order and represent you if you are arrested for violating a protection order.
At the Law Offices of Scot Stuart Brower, we will carefully examine if a search and seizure of your premises or person was constitutionally permissible and whether a warrant was issued for the search of cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamines or other drugs. If authorities violated the law to gather evidence against you, we will immediately file pretrial motions to have the evidence suppressed.
If you are a first-time drug offender, relevant statutory law provides for counseling if you plead to the charge against you. A successful stint in drug counseling could result in your record being expunged through a request to the Attorney General’s Office. Another option potentially available to you is a deferred plea. If you comply with the counseling and the terms of your probation, and generally stay out of trouble, your charges will be dismissed.
High-profile sex offense incidents have been featured on programs such as Dateline NBC, dealing with matters involving alleged internet predators soliciting underage children. Sexual abuse also occurs within families. The shame of a charge and the stigma attached can carry the same perception as a conviction. Our firm recognizes that you have a constitutional right to have your case heard and that you are innocent until proven guilty.
Clients in many instances have been falsely accused and subsequently charged with a crime. If you are innocent of a sex offense charge such as sexual assault, statutory rape, or child molestation, we will handle your case with due compassion and diligence in dealing with law enforcement.
