Criminal Defense

Felony & Misdemeanor

Whether you are facing misdemeanor or felony charges in a criminal court, the outcome of your case will likely depend on the quality of your representation. Being represented by a criminal defense attorney who is knowledgeable in criminal law and experienced in the courtroom helps your case from the arraignment stage until the final resolution.

Through interning at the San Diego public defender’s office and later working as a public defender in South Lake Tahoe, Scott Souers acquired the requisite knowledge and experience to successfully represent criminal defendants in Lake Tahoe.

Scott Souers has experience representing defendants in both criminal court in Lake Tahoe and the Washoe Tribal Court for the Washoe Tribe of California and Nevada.  Whether you are facing state or federal charges, Scott Souers can help you with your case.

Many criminal defendants in Lake Tahoe courts are individuals who were arrested for misdemeanor offenses while vacationing in Lake Tahoe and have since been charged with misdemeanors.  Whether or not you are a resident in the Lake Tahoe area and you have an upcoming arraignment hearing in a Lake Tahoe criminal court, you may not be required to make a personal appearance at your arraignment hearing.

Hiring a local attorney to represent you at your arraignment hearing and subsequent court hearings may save you the time and costs associated with having to miss work and travel to Lake Tahoe for your court date.

If you are facing criminal charges and would like to have a criminal defense attorney assess the facts of your case to determine whether you may have a valid defense, contact Scott Souers at William B. Cherry & Associates for a consultation.
