The Schneider Law Firm, LLC

Criminal Defense

The Schneider law firm takes a uniquely different approach to criminal defense – an intensely personal one. They get involved early and strive to make an often rocky process as smooth as possible for their clients.

The Schneider Law Firm’s goal is to truly get their clients back on track after criminal or DUI charges. A criminal charge can derail someone’s life, so the attorney you choose can be a life-changing decision. You don’t go to a dentist for chest pains and shouldn’t go to an attorney who doesn’t specialize in criminal defense when your liberty is on the line. The Schneider Law Firm strives to guide their clients back to a positive trajectory. As a former prosecutor, Lead Attorney Cris Schneider brings a deep understanding of how cases are built against his clients. He and his team use that knowledge to advocate on behalf of the criminally accused and to defend their rights.

DUI Facts You Should Know:

  • A DUI can have serious consequences on your future. Not only can you lose your license, but you may also lose your job if convicted. Here are a few things you should know about DUI’s.
  • Breathalyzers can be inaccurate. The machines themselves may not be properly installed, maintained, and calibrated.  More significantly, medical issues, diets, and medications can lead to false results.  
  • Field sobriety tests can be inaccurate. These tests are subjective and are very difficult to administer correctly, especially along the side of the road. Medical conditions and medications can also impact your perceived performance.
  • A DUI is the only offense where the state can try you twice. Crazy right? Outside of the criminal charges, the state implements a civil action against you to suspend your driving privileges.  To make matters worse you only have 10 days from the date of your arrest to request a hearing or your license is automatically suspended.
