His ability to negotiate favorable resolutions is matched only by his extensive and effective trial skills. Mr. Nahajski has represented more than 5,000 clients over the past seventeen years who have been accused of every conceivable criminal allegation. He has established an excellent reputation amongst prosecutors and judges alike as an attorney who will do everything possible to assist his clients in a professional and effective manner.The firm has successfully represented clients accused of serious felonies including attempted first degree murder, vehicular homicide, vehicular assault, first degree assault, second degree assault, third degree assault, felony domestic violence, drive-by shooting, arson, rape, indecent liberties, rape of a child, child molestation, communicating with a minor for immoral purposes (CMIP), possession of child pornography, voyeurism, unlawful imprisonment, stalking, escape, attempting to elude, first degree robbery, second degree robbery, bank robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm.Financial “white-collar” crimes are also a significant portion of the practice, including forgery, check fraud, bank fraud, cheating and identity theft.

Drug charges include delivery of controlled substances (VUCSA), manufacturing or possession of marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines, ecstasy, possession of drug paraphernalia and forged prescriptions.The experience of having an extensive felony practice is a huge benefit when representing the many clients accused of misdemeanors as well.
