Meridian Criminal Defense Lawyers

Fighting For Your Rights And Your Future

A conviction on any type of criminal charge can have a serious impact on your future. Depending on the seriousness of the offense, you could be facing substantial fines, jail time and other penalties. In addition, you could be left with a criminal record that could follow you for the rest of your life.

At Witherspoon & Compton, LLC, we provide strong defense representation against all types of criminal charges, including traffic violations and drug offenses. If you have been arrested for a drunk driving charge from Meridian to Laurel, Mississippi, our DWI/DUI attorneys will fight to keep your record clean and your driving privileges secure. In every case our goal is to protect your constitutional rights, and to obtain the most favorable result possible under the circumstances, all in an effort to allow you to walk away with your rights and freedom intact.

Former Prosecutors Representing The Accused

Together our criminal defense attorneys have more than 40 years of experience as prosecutors at the city, county, and state level. Our complete understanding of these cases from both sides allows us to be much more proactive in the process of creating a sound defense in your case. We know how to use the law to your advantage. If there are holes in the prosecution’s case, we can find them. We will pursue every available option in an effort to get the charges against you dismissed or to win a not-guilty verdict at trial, if possible. However, if an acquittal from the charge is not available, a favorable plea bargain may be an option at the election of the client.

Our attorneys handle all types of felony and misdemeanor offenses, including:

  • Theft
  • Assault
  • Burglary
  • Possession of a controlled substance and other drug crimes
  • Traffic violations
  • License suspension and insurance violations
  • Expungements and record clearing
