Criminal Defense

An arrest or criminal complaint can turn your world upside down. Everything you’ve worked for all your life, including your reputation, is put at immediate risk. The criminal defense team, led by attorney Josh Hickey and supervised by partner Toby McLaughlin, understand how you feel and know that you want someone to stand up for your rights.

At Berg, McLaughlin & Nelson, know you’re entitled to a zealous defense and that’s exactly what you’ll get.

Throughout each phase of your case, we will fight for justice, fairness, and your freedom. Our approach is to start with detailed investigation of the circumstances of your case. Then we mine the law for available defenses. The litigation team discusses your case to make sure we haven’t missed anything. And, when the time comes, we mount an aggressive defense, whether in dealing with the prosecutor, during a criminal mediation, or at trial.
