Criminal Defense

If you have been charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, you need a reputable lawyer on your side to fight for your rights and obtain the best possible outcome for your case. From minor incidents to major crimes and serious charges, Cosme D. Ripol and his legal staff will examine all the facts of your case, determining reasons or situations that led up to the criminal incident or charge, and come up with a defense strategy.

We offer complete support in and out of the courtroom, fighting for the least severe sentencing and fines. Our lawyers strive to get your case dismissed, receive a not guilty verdict from the jury, or have your case acquitted whenever possible. Just a few examples of the criminal defense cases we handle include disorderly conduct, major traffic violations, assault, domestic violence cases, theft, arson, and more serious criminal charges such as involuntary manslaughter and even murder cases. No matter what you’re facing, we will seek the best possible outcome for your case.


Getting charged with a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) can happen more easily than you think. If you feel you have no other alternate ride home or consumed more alcohol than you thought, you may end up driving home with a blood alcohol level above the legal limit. You may have been falsely charged with a DUI—the officer may not have followed all the testing procedures or other factors rather than alcohol caused you to make a mistake while driving.

Regardless of what happened, Cosme D. Ripol will vigorously defend your rights and strive to obtain the best possible outcome, whether that means the charges are dismissed, the fine is lowered, or jail time is reduced if applicable. We also connect you to resources such as alcohol counseling and driving classes to assist you personally or help fulfill the terms of your sentencing when needed.

If you are facing any type of criminal or DUI charge, contact us for a no obligation consultation to receive the legal support you need to put your case behind you.
