Criminal Defense

If you are under criminal investigation, or if you have been charged with a crime, call Rooney McBride & Smith, LLC immediately. Our firm’s criminal defense attorney, Benjamin A. McBride, served as a Greene County prosecutor for seven years. This experience and knowledge gives him valuable insight to provide you with legal advice and protect your rights in criminal matters.

The RMS strategy for your defense will involve the following steps: a full evaluation of all police reports regarding the case, thorough analysis of any witness reports, careful study of the legality of law enforcement actions, working with the assigned prosecutor to negotiate, identifying the most effective defense strategy based on the facts, filing pre-trial motions that could benefit you at trial, crafting a strategic defense case for presentation to the judge or jury, and presenting the case at trial with skill and convincing arguments.
