Practice Areas Overview

Offering Experience and the Highest Quality of Representation

Over 30 Years of Criminal Law Experience

At the Law Office of Charles C. Cosby, Jr., I dedicate my entire practice to defending people just like you facing serious criminal charges. In every case I handle I am committed to seeking dismissals or reduced charges, seeking acquittals and otherwise minimizing the possibly life-altering consequences that come with a conviction.

Attorney Charles C. Cosby, Jr. has immersed himself in the criminal justice system for over 30 years, and has formerly worked as a prosecutor. His experience on the other side of the courtroom gives him valuable insights into how the prosecution presents different types of cases, thus allowing him to proactively plan his approach around their tactics. Also, his appearances in a variety of jurisdictions over more than a quarter of a century has given him knowledge of how to effectively handle criminal cases that only such experience can bring. He is here to provide high-quality representation that protects your rights, addresses your concerns and yields the best possible result for you.
