We help clients with the challenges of addressing time-sensitive and life-altering situations.

Former Prosecutor on Your Side
Much of our success comes from knowing how the prosecution thinks. Founding attorney Ryan McPhie previously worked as a prosecutor, giving him the experience to understand the legal system and prosecutorial strategies. We know the tactics the prosecution will likely use, and we devise our legal defense to counter these tactics.
McPhie Law practices in several areas of criminal defense, including:
- Domestic violence
- Drug crimes
- DUI defense
- Aggravated DUI
- Extreme DUI
- Public urination
- Restoration of rights
- Setting aside judgements
- Sex crimes
- Title IX defense
- Theft crimes
- Traffic violations
- White-collar crimes
The Consequences of Criminal Convictions
Criminal convictions can come with serious consequences. Even a conviction for a misdemeanor can leave a lasting impact on your life. If you face criminal charges, you need an experienced attorney to represent you throughout the process.
By hiring an attorney right away, McPhie Law will have adequate time to review the charges and evidence filed against you to help you prepare your case and protect your interests. With the right planning and preparation, we may be able to have your charges reduced or even dropped.
Planning for your case includes:
- The proper filing of paperwork
- Reviewing evidence
- Cross-examining witnesses as necessary
- Working with experts to build your case
- Helping you plan your next move
In some cases, an attorney may demonstrate that a defendant did not willfully commit a crime. For example, a woman may face DUI charges after someone else slipped a date-rape drug into her drink, and may have started driving before the drugs took effect.
Even if you are charged with a low-level felony, enlisting strong legal representation remains vital. We may be able to negotiate the reduction of your felony to a misdemeanor, either immediately or once you have successfully completed probation. In addition, attorneys can often negotiate to reduce drug charges, which can prevent you from serving jail time.
