Evansville Criminal Defense Attorneys

Serious charges demand serious representation. Criminal defense lawyers David Kent and Craig Goedde bring 40 years of courtroom experience in both criminal and civil litigation. He has defended clients of all walks of life accused of felonies, misdemeanors and serious traffic offenses:

  • Driving under the influence (DUI)
  • Drug offenses
  • Theft or conversion
  • Burglary or robbery
  • Assault or domestic violence
  • Traffic offenses (suspended license, hit-and-run, no insurance, reckless driving)

Traffic Violations and CDL Drivers
On behalf of truck drivers, trucking companies and their insurers, we fight traffic violations and DOT violations that would result in substantial fines or sanctions against the trucker's commercial driver's license (CDL). We have successfully challenged citations for speeding, illegal passing, exceeding weight restrictions and other offenses arising from traffic stops on I-64, I-164 and U.S. 41 in the Evansville area.

We Know the Stakes. We Know the System.

A criminal conviction results not only in penalties imposed by the court, but often collateral consequences for your employment, driving privileges, finances, family and your standing in the community. We will do everything possible to limit the adverse effects of your arrest.

Our attorney is familiar with pretrial diversions and other programs for first-time or nonviolent offenses that may allow you to avoid jail, and keep this off your record in exchange for probation, community service, restitution, treatment or other conditions.

These alternatives are not volunteered by the court or automatically available. Mr. Kent knows how to work with the local prosecutors to negotiate the best possible outcome in your case, and they know that he is willing to take your case to a jury if necessary to fight for your freedom and your future.
