Wilmington DE DUI & Criminal Defense Lawyer

When You Need Someone to Fight for Your Second Chance

Facing a serious criminal charge in the State of Delaware? Call me, Kevin P. O'Neill, Esquire, for immediate help.

Knowledge Is Power

It is almost political suicide to resist stronger criminal laws and stronger traffic laws. Every year it seems the Delaware legislature increases the criminal penalties and the severe motor vehicle sanctions. The citizen has only one weapon on his side: knowledge.

Acting as law enforcement professionals, the police know this all too well. As criminal laws and traffic ticket laws become more severe, it may only be a matter of time before the net is cast over you or someone you know. The only way to protect yourself is through knowledge and aggressive criminal defense representation.

Remember: Never assume that you can talk your way out of a criminal arrest, a DUI/DWI arrest or a traffic ticket. If you try to do this, the odds are heavily against you. Be polite, be courteous, but try to KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT. As the saying goes, "Anything you say, can and will be used against you." It is really true!

And please resist the temptation to beg for mercy. Only a sentencing judge can show mercy, so do not beg the police officer to be "cut a break.” They want you to talk, so be polite but by all means, be quiet. So many convictions can be avoided if people understand their legal obligations, and more importantly, if they understand how the system works. This Website is designed to give you the courage you need to stick up for yourself against intrusive police officers and overzealous prosecutors.

With over 25 years of experience in representing criminal defendants and traffic arrests, I have built my legal practice from the ground up, by doing things the right way regardless of time and effort. For me, representing individuals is a passion.

I am known as a fighter and skilled courtroom attorney. I have represented hundreds of people accused of serious criminal offenses, DUIs and traffic violations in Delaware.

Let's face it: When police make a decision to arrest, they are usually only considering one side of the story -their side. But there are two sides to most stories. With me the court will hear the other side of the story, your side of the story. It makes a big difference. Also, for those people who have made a bad decision, it still makes all the sense in the world to hire a private attorney. Do not let the system take advantage of you. You should fight. I can help you fight your drinking and driving charge, and many other types of criminal charges.

If you need honest answers from an experienced defense lawyer, please call my office in Wilmington today at 302-622-9500 for a free initial consultation. I am a fighter. I will fight for your rights and for the second chance you need.
