Experienced Criminal Defense For Those With Mental Illness

Families are often at a loss at trying to get help for those with mental illness. This is even more difficult when those with mental illness commit a criminal act.

At The Rudman Law Group – Advocates for those with Addiction and Mental Illness -, we know the devastating impact a criminal charge can have for families already in crisis. It's important to get experienced representation that works with therapists, doctors, and treatment facilities to simultaneously help those with mental illness to get healthy while trying to resolve criminal charges. Jail shouldn't be the only resolution.

Proactive Defense. Helping Families In Crisis.

Felony and domestic crimes often occur in furtherance of an individual's mental illness. At our defense firm, we help defend people's rights as they relate to:

  • Battery
  • Domestic violence
  • Stalking
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Resist officer without violence
  • Resist officer with violence

Those accused of these crimes may not know that they have a mental illness and are at risk of not getting proper diagnosis. Many times, they have parents and loved ones who are involved and want to help.

We work with licensed therapists and doctors to help determine the mental health of our client and how to get proper treatment for their illness. Our attorneys then work to provide smart legal representation to plead to the court expertly diagnosed remedies versus jail. But above all, we strive to provide a stable plan for long-term recovery.
