If you have been charged with a crime, you may be thinking one of two things: "I am guilty, what is a lawyer going to do for me?" or "I am innocent, why would I need an attorney?"

While this may be your first brush with the law, at Melrose, Seago & Lay, P.A., we have handled thousands of criminal cases. We understand the law, and we know how to build a strong defense for you.
