Experienced WV lawyers to investigate and defend criminal cases

Aggressive Criminal Defense against Criminal Charges

From a basic traffic violation or common misdemeanor to the most serious felony offense, it’s important to respond quickly to avoid the worst outcome of an arrest.

William Brewer has extensive criminal defense experience in his 36 years of practice and has tried numerous cases to a jury verdict involving serious felonies such as murder, serial rape, sexual assault, and robbery. He was also awarded the “White Collar Attorney of the Year” honor.

A DUI arrest has far-reaching implications and requires aggressive representation. Conviction on a first offense can result in at least 24 hours in jail, a criminal record, fines, and license suspension of 90 days to six months. West Virginia has a 10-year look-back period, and a second offense carries severe punishment — six months to one year in jail and license revocation of up to 10 years. William C. Brewer & Associates will investigate to find errors by police or violations of individual rights. The firm will make every attempt to dismiss charges or reduce a DUI charge to a lesser offense, but if needed, attorneys are prepared to go to trial.
