Criminal Defense


As soon as you are charged with a crime, it is important to seek consultation from an experienced attorney. It doesn’t matter what you have been charged with; speaking to an attorney ensures your rights are protected from the start. Our law firm represents clients for a variety of criminal justice matters including DUI/DWI, violent crimes, drug offenses, misdemeanors, felonies, and expungements.

We offer free initial consultations where our attorney will evaluate your case. When we take you on as a client, we will work with you to develop the best strategy and then gather the appropriate evidence and testimony. For clients struggling financially with DUI/DWI services, we offer payment plan options.

Traffic Violations


When you are issued a traffic ticket, it’s easy to assume you need to do nothing to address it, other than paying the fine. In truth, paying your ticket is pleading guilty to the violation, which can result in points on your license, points on your insurance, and more. Consulting a lawyer after you receive a traffic violation can help prevent additional fines and increased insurance rates.

The Cotton Law Firm provides representation for a variety of traffic law matters. Traffic violations range from minor infractions such as failing to signal when changing lanes to serious offenses such as reckless driving, DWI, and more. From our beginning, our attorneys have provided reliable, effective traffic law representation. We frequently help clients with speeding tickets, and in most cases, these matters can be handled by waiver, without you having to attend court with your attorney.
