We have the experience and know how to represent your family members for all forms of offenses: burglary, robbery, theft, and white-collar crimes.

If you, or someone you care about, is under suspicion or has been charged with a crime, whether a felony or lesser offense, it is important that you seek advice from a quality Criminal Defense attorney- BEFORE you make ANY statements or respond to any questions from- police, investigators or the prosecutors.

At Nichols & Pina, Eugene B. Nichols always makes it a point to know more than the opposition knows: about the law, about the facts, about the evidence, and about YOUR RIGHTS. It's not your burden to prove you DIDN'T commit the offense, it is their burden to prove that your DID. Often, we can show that the State lacks the needed evidence to prove that, or that there were such errors made in the process that the case must be dropped altogether.
