You have one opportunity to retain attorneys with the experience required to negotiate a satisfactory
resolution or take the matter to trial before a Judge or Jury. We have successfully represented thousands of
people charged with crimes-obtaining the best possible results.
You Have Rights If You Are Accused of a Crime
It is absolutely critical that you understand that if you are charged with a crime, you have certain rights that
have been guaranteed in our Federal and State Constitution.
One of the most critical rights that you have is the right to the attorney of your choosing to represent you at
what might be the most critical time in your life.
A Systematic Method To Develop Your Defense
No two criminal cases are the same. Every client is unique. At Boucher and Kanan we begin the process of
representing our clients by engaging them in an intensive interview about the facts of their case in order to
determine available defenses and mitigation strategies. We then develop a plan that will guide the client through
the process and insure the greatest likelihood for achieving the objective of the client.
Too many attorney's meet with a potential client and simply tell them what they want to hear. Our philosophy is
dramatically different. We will candidly discuss your case from the perspective of two trial lawyers who have
taken hundreds of cases to verdict.
We go the extra mile because we are mindful of the fact that a criminal conviction can be devastating and can
result in your imprisonment, fines, costs and probation. It can mean the loss of your home, your family, your way

For each and every client we devote the time necessary to prepare your case and master the facts and the law to
