Choosing the right attorney to fight for you is the most crucial decision you may make in your life.  I have 22 years of criminal law experience, beginning with 8 years as a prosecutor in the Lawrence area.  Having started my career building criminal cases, I have the tools you need to take your case apart.  Contacting my office is the first step to getting your life back.  Check out my website to learn more: www.erkanlaw.com.

Criminal defense is both an art form and a specialization.  In the same way you would not go to your PCP if you needed open heart surgery, you should not hire the lawyer who will handle your real estate closing one day and your DUI arrest the next.  

For nearly a quarter of a century, I have spent every day in the criminal courts, fighting for my clients rights and their freedom.  Only through this extreme focus can a lawyer develop the skills necessary to give you the advantage you need - when everything is on the line.  

In my time as a prosecutor, then as a criminal defense lawyer, I have handled every type of criminal matter: from DUI to murder; harassment to rape; possession of marijuana to international drug smuggling.  Over the years, I have trained police officers, prosecutors, and trial lawyers on effective and ethical practice.

History is the best predictor of any outcome.  My results are the proof; they can be viewed here: https://www.erkanlaw.com/case-results.  Cycling through this page will reveal my office's truly unrivaled record of exonerations, dismissals and acquittals.  In these results, you will see first hand how my office can make the difference for you.

At my office, we put our clients first.  We treat them as people first.  And we fight to win.   That is why we have a perfect record of 5/5 star reviews on all attorney client rating platforms.  Google us, check us out on avvo.com, or see the testimonials on our website at https://www.erkanlaw.com/recommendations.   

Our astonishing commitment to our clients, and the results we obtain, have led to widespread recognition of our firm among practicing attorneys.  In fact, I was recently rated AV-Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell*, which is the "highest peer rating standard ... given to attorneys who are ranked at the highest level of professional excellence for their legal expertise, communication skills, and ethical standards by their peers."  Check out our peer reviews on Martindale.com, Avvo.com, or on our website at https://www.erkanlaw.com/peer-endorsements.

We look forward to serving you.
