Criminal Defense

Pratt & Simmons represent criminal defendants in all Maine State Courts and in Federal Court for the District of Maine. We have experience in all types of misdemeanors and felonies. We have represented individuals charged with Operating Under the Influence (OUI), Drug Possession, Drug Trafficking, Gross Sexual Assault, Arson, Murder, Attempted Murder, Manslaughter, Assault, Domestic Violence Assault, Criminal Threatening, Criminal Mischief, Possession of Undersized Lobster and many many more.

Pratt & Simmons also handles criminal appeals. A criminal appeal occurs after an individual has been found guilty after trial or after an individual has entered a conditional guilty plea. Often this will be last the opportunity an individual will have to challenge their conviction. If you are considering an appeal call us immediately because very strict rules govern how long an individual has to appeal.

Pratt & Simmons handles post conviction review. A post conviction conviction review occurs after trial or plea and after all appeals have been exhausted. A post conviction review most often challenges the constitutional sufficiency of trial counsel and or appellate counsel. Like appeals very strict rules govern how long an individual has to file a post conviction review. If you are considering a post conviction review call us today.
