Criminal Defense

When you’ve been charged with a crime, the first thing you need to do is to contact a criminal defense attorney. There is no substitute for a strong, knowledgeable, and experienced attorney to help you and your family through this challenging time.

Experienced, Quality, and Aggressive Representation

Bad things happen to good people.  People make mistakes, situations can quickly escalate, and often people are unjustly accused of crimes.  No one ever wants to find themselves in a situation where they must hire a criminal defense attorney, but when the need presents itself you need an experienced, respected, and aggressive attorney to fight for your rights and liberty.  When you hire Attorney Kovach she stands by you, committed to working her hardest to assure you receive quality, aggressive, and compassionate legal representation.

Attorney Kovach is also experienced with representing people compassionately whose cases have a mental health or addiction component.

Skilled Negotiator and Litigator

Although Tamari Kovach enjoys trial advocacy, she recognizes that not all cases need a trial to achieve a successful resolution for her clients.  Many cases can be successfully resolved short of a trial by tactful yet aggressive negotiations, advocacy, and motion practice.

Your case will be carefully evaluated and all avenues of resolution will be explored and discussed with you so you can make educated and informed decisions regarding the resolution or strategy of your case.

Attentive Service

Any criminal charge is a serious and important matter, and therefore will be handled as such. Every client and every case matters.  You will have an experienced and accessible attorney who treats you with respect, truly listens to your needs, and fights for your liberty, rights, and future.  An open line of communication is a crucial component of a good working relationship and fostering trust. Attorney Kovach will take the time to answer all your questions, make sure you truly understand the charges, consequences and what to expect during all stages of the process.

Collateral Consequences of Criminal Charges

Attorney Kovach understands that a criminal charge can possibly have devastating collateral consequences for years to come.  They can affect not just your liberty and reputation, but your employment, family, schooling, finances, licenses, and immigration status.  An important component of her relationship with clients is spotting and minimizing the potential collateral consequences of a criminal matter.  She will ask the questions that will solicit the necessary information to effectively issue spot collateral consequences.

Flat Rate Fee for Criminal Cases

A reasonable flat fee rate is quoted for criminal cases. Hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney does not have to break the bank.  However, we all have heard the expression “you get what you pay for”; it is a well know phrase for a good reason.  Attorney Kovach will charge you a reasonable rate in exchange for experienced, dedicated, and attentive legal representation.  As a seasoned litigator and business manager she takes the time to evaluate the case to reach a fair and reasonable rate quote.  She takes into consideration the nature of the charges and expected complexity of the case.

In addition to traditional payment methods she accepts credit card payments because she understands that many people faced with an impending legal matter did not save for this type of unexpected expense.
