Criminal Law

Determined to protect your rights and deliver the best possible outcome

If you’ve been charged with a crime, the fight you face will determine the future course of your life. You must choose an attorney who understands the weight of those circumstances and is willing to fight as though he has an equal stake in the outcome. I’m Andrew Potter, and I have doggedly pursued justice for my clients for more than 20 years. In both private practice and as a public defender, I’ve defended individuals who faced severe consequences, including the death penalty. In those cases, I made every effort to bring the truth to light, whether that was a piece of exculpatory evidence or a mere fact of my client’s life that argued for clemency. And my efforts were tireless because I knew I was the last impediment to a miscarriage of justice. If you want an attorney who is persistent in fighting to protect your rights, you can trust Potter Law.

Persistent effort on your behalf yields positive results

No attorney can guarantee results, and it’s especially counter-productive in criminal cases to assure a defendant that an acquittal is possible. However, I can and do promise to make every effort to challenge the case against you, to discover hidden facts that might raise reasonable doubt, and to present relevant facts that could lead to a decision not to prosecute, a reduction in charges or reduced sentencing. I have demonstrated my ability to advocate for my clients in numerous cases, notably:

  • State v Marcellous Boseman — In this case, decided January 1, 2008, my client was charged with murder and was staring at a life sentence. State prosecutors made no offers to reduce the charges, so we went to trial and secured a not guilty.
  • State v Nathaniel C. Dickson — In this case from May 2009, my client was an 18-year-old charged with killing four members of his own family with a shotgun. Despite his age, because of the heinous nature of the crime, the case was death-penalty certified. I was able to negotiate a plea that removed the possibility of the death penalty.
  • State v Jared Williams — In this case from December 2014, my client was charged with three murders and multiple attempted murders. Because the targets had been police officers, prosecutors approached the case very aggressively. The defendant was qualified to receive the death penalty if convicted, but through a plea negotiation, the death penalty was removed.

As your criminal defense attorney, I promise to provide a candid assessment of your case and to be a zealous advocate for your rights.
