Arrest and Bail Emergencies

Getting arrested can be very traumatic, as can not knowing where your loved one is. If you or someone you love has been arrested, call Bushnell & Best right away. Dealing with this situation is what we do for a living, and we get people back where they belong as soon as possible.

Felony Assault and Battery

Being charged with assault and battery is a very serious matter, that can result in significant prison time if not handled correctly. Usually there are two sides to a story. We help our clients tell their side of the story in a way that makes sense.

Felony Theft and Burglary

When a person is accused of taking something that is not theirs, it can feel like the whole world is falling in on them. We hold police and prosecutors accountable to prove their case, because you are innocent until they prove otherwise.

DWI - Driving While Intoxicated

These cases are for more complex than some people assume. From whether the officer had a legal reason to pull you over in the first place, to whether you were tested in accordance with the law, we review every aspect of the police's conduct, and then aggressively represent your rights.

Sexual Assault

Being accused of something you didn't do is a horrible experience with the potential for long term consequences. Bushnell & Best has extensive experience handling these emotionally charged cases, and standing next to you when no one else will.

Misdemeanors 

Misdemeanors are no small matter, and can result in people spending up to 364 days in jail. In addition, many things people don't think are serious, can still have consequences outside of jail time, such as the loss of a job, an apartment, or other similar consequences

Orders for Protection (OFP) and Harrassment Restraining Orders (HRO) 

If a client is being threatened or continually harassed, we aggressively defend their rights. That can include filing an Order for Protection or Restraining Order and going to court to ensure such orders are enforced. We also defend our client's when they are unjustly accused.
