Criminal Defense in Dover, Delaware

A Deliberate and Methodical Defense Strategy

If you have been charged with a crime, your emotions are probably running high. Fear, anger, and confusion are all common responses to your situation, especially if you have never been in this position before. Individuals who have dealt with the criminal justice system on previous occasions may feel frustrated or cynical. While it is important to find an attorney who will treat you with respect and empathy, their ability to put forth an effective and thorough defense on your behalf is the most important criterion. Attorney Alexander Funk will carefully determine all the facts that pertain to your case and create a tailored approach that takes into account the type of crime, your history and background, and the prosecutor. He believes in understanding the entire context of the situation before taking action. While this approach may not sound very exciting, ask yourself: is excitement really what you want at this stage? Mr. Funk believes that a deliberate and methodical defense strategy is key to a successful outcome.

Experience With Every Aspect of the Criminal Defense Process

All too often an issue that seems like a minor speed bump to the person charged is actually the legal equivalent of a semi truck headed straight for you. Assuming that the situation will resolve itself or go away is a recipe for disaster. Mr. Funk has dedicated his practice to criminal defense and has experience with everything from minor traffic tickets to first-degree murder. His practice areas include:

  • Drug crimes, including trafficking, possession, distribution, and manufacturing
  • DUI, including felony DUI, multiple DUI, and vehicular assault/homicide
  • Expungement of criminal records
  • Property crimes, including arson, theft, and criminal trespass
  • Sex crimes, including rape, unlawful sexual contact, child pornography, and sexual harassment
  • Traffic violations, including reckless driving, careless driving, and speeding tickets
  • Violent crimes, including assault, domestic violence, and gun crimes

Regardless of your specific charge, it is vital that you take quick action in order to keep your options open and maximize your chances for a positive outcome. Mr. Funk has experience with every aspect of the criminal defense process. He will clearly explain your situation and outline your possibilities for moving forward.

Effective Representation is a Two-Way Street

Effective representation is a two-way street. Your attorney needs as much information as possible from you in order to craft the most complete defense possible, not only about your criminal charge, but also about your history and character. Good people make mistakes or suffer from errors in judgment. Attorney Alexander Funk believes that such people should not be made to suffer maximum consequences for their actions.
