A drug conviction may carry serious consequences and retaining experienced defense counsel at the earliest possible stage may drastically affect the outcome of your case.

Sex Crimes

While sex crimes are some of the most heinous crimes committed against others, many who are charged with a sex crime have been wrongfully accused. This has sometimes occurred when parties are going through a difficult divorce or custody battle. Other times a person may be wrongfully accused of a sex crime because of sloppy investigative work. At Schmidt Law Firm, PLLC, we have successfully tried sex crime cases in courts throughout Mississippi. If you or a family member is charged with a sex crime, call Schmidt Law Firm, PLLC immediately at 601-545-2525.

Violent Crimes

Hiring the right attorney can mean the difference between life without parole and the death penalty or being acquitted. Schmidt Law Firm, PLLC has represented many clients accused of violent crimes, including aggravated assault, armed robbery, murder, capital murder, and manslaughter.


If you have been arrested or convicted of a crime and feel you may qualify for an expungement of that charge from your record, contact our office for a free consultation. We can evaluate your record to determine if it may be expunged or sealed. Having an arrest of criminal charge on your record can affect numerous aspects of your life, including your ability to get a job, housing, an education, loans, promotions, security clearances, et cetera. It is always in your best interest to have a criminal arrest expunged from your record.

A District Attorney has the resources of the state or federal government at his or her disposal to build a case against you.

They have a crime lab, investigators, the police and other law enforcement agencies, as well as the ability to offer plea deals to co-defendants in exchange for their testimony against you. You need an experienced criminal defense attorney working for you to neutralize the resources used by the state. At Schmidt Law Firm, we work with retired detectives and federal agents to ensure that the law enforcement agency charging you has conducted a thorough, legal and ethical investigation. Our investigators will interview witnesses and examine evidence to make sure that all relevant evidence is discovered, not just the evidence most helpful to the prosecution. We will work hard to ensure that we have all the tools to properly fight for you in court.
