The attorneys at Powers & Costeck represent clients in criminal cases. Both Ron Costeck and Jason Powers are experienced criminal law trial attorneys. The firm takes on all crimes. Some lawyers advertise as specialists in such areas as DUI or sex offenses. That simply means they are not educated or experienced about the entire field of criminal law. Without knowledge of other areas an attorney may miss something that would apply in a future case. For example, a court may rule that a certain search technique was illegal when investigating an assault. If an attorney simply practices in a specialty they very well could miss this ruling when it could be applicable in a DUI case. The point is, you want an attorney with a broad base of knowledge when you walk into that courtroom. For that reason, this firm represents people accused of all crimes. To the left is a partial list. If you are charged with something no on this website we can help. Please call with any questions.
