Our Priority is You

Jerald Novak & Associates is a boutique criminal defense law firm. We have decades of experience in the areas of DUI and Criminal Defense.

When arrested we are not always sure what to do, what to say or who we can trust. Often we don’t know our legal rights. We’re usually confused, anxious or emotionally overwhelmed. We get lots of “legal” advice from people who are not qualified to give it. And we don’t always know where to turn for help. I will also demystify the “legaleeze” that will be going on all around you, both in and out of court. -Jerry Novak
