“David LaCross knows what to do to win!”

- Annette Hutchins

When you’re charged with a crime, it can feel like the whole world is against you.

Law enforcement doesn’t care whether you’re guilty or not.

The government wants to see you behind bars.

And many lawyers are either too busy or too greedy to properly handle your case.

You want someone who knows how to listen to your story – and you want someone who knows how to WIN.

At LaCross & Murphy, we have a reputation for fighting the good fight. We have decades of experience fighting to protect our clients’ freedom, and we work constantly to become the best criminal defense trial lawyers we can be.

People from all walks of life get taken advantage of by the system.

Let us help you fight back.

In addition to our criminal defense work, we also take Personal Injury cases, helping our clients stand up against entities who have caused them life-altering harm.

“From the moment I met David LaCross, he treated me like I was family. He took care of my case quickly and professionally. When I came in for the consultation, I didn't know what to do, where to go, and I didn't know anything about the process of how everything worked. Mr LaCross was able to talk me down off of the proverbial ledge so I didn't feel like my whole world was ending. If you ever need anyone to defend you and fight for you, he's your guy!”
