When making the decision to hire a criminal defense lawyer, several things must always be kept in mind. It is better to involve legal representation sooner, rather than later. Should you choose to work with an inexperienced firm or a public defender, you may get exactly what you pay for. With their time spread thin and their experience at a minimum, you risk facing serious consequences when using their services.

Our legal team, however, has vast experience and seasoned advice to offer all of our clients. We work with you to find a reasonable and aggressive solution to your case, and it does not stop there. We will always protect your rights, in and out of court, and we will work day in and day out until we know that we have a competent and compassionate argument on our side.

"A major part of being a successful defense attorney... knowing how to recognize the weaknesses in the State's case against your client. As a former prosecutor, I ask myself, 'Could I convict this person, and how would I do it?' If you know how to successfully prosecute a case, you can then recognize the area or areas that are vulnerable to an attack."


  • Best lawyer ever!

    “Best lawyer ever! A couple of months ago I was in a really tight spot. There was a misunderstanding and I hired Mr. Kinsell to facilitate discussions with the authorities. Mr. Kinsell resolved the matter quickly and kept the situation from escalating. He was professional and knowledgeable. It was money well spent and I highly recommend Mr. Kinsell if you find yourself in a pickle.”


  • Had I not had Miles representing me, I don't know what would have happened to me...

    “I had a legal issue back in 2006 that should have ruined my life. Luckily, I was referred to Miles. Through Miles' hard work, I was able to move on from the incident without ruining my well being. Among other things, what Miles can bring to the table is that before he became a defense attorney, he worked for years as a state prosecutor. Obviously, he knows the ins and outs on their side. He was able to get the state to compromise with me and show me some leniency - when the state did not have to do so. Had I not had Miles representing me, I don't know what would have happened to me - but I know I would not be in as good a position as I'm in right now. Miles is worth every penny I paid him for helping me. He knows what he is doing. If you are looking for a defense attorney who can make things happen with the state, call Miles.”


  • He and his assistant were always available to me and handled my case quickly and there could not have been a better outcome for me.

    “After reading several reviews on different attorneys in the area I chose Miles Kinsell partly due to the detailed reviews about other peoples experiences with him. When I saw that his business hours are 24 hours, 7 days a week I called and spoke directly to him on a Sunday evening, which is the other part of why I chose him as my representation. Mr Kinsell is concise and direct which is exactly what you want in an attorney. He and his assistant were always available to me and handled my case quickly and there could not have been a better outcome for me. I dont want to put the details of my case online because I want to leave it behind me, but if you or someone you love are in a serious legal situation I highly recommend that you retain him.”


  • Miles Kinsell is THE criminal defense attorney to have represent you.

    “My husband got in criminal trouble for something his work alleged that he did. We called Miles Kinsell because several people said he was the "best criminal attorney in town." Mr. Kinsell was professional and knowledgeable. My husband and I felt comfortable with his future in Mr. Kinsell's hands. He walked us through the process and kept us involved. After an intial plea offer involving prison, Mr. Kinsell aggressively handled our case and got the prosecutors office to drop the charge to a misdemeanor. My husband spent no time in jail! We strongly recommend Miles Kinsell and if anypne we knew ever got in criminal trouble, we wouldn't hesitate to say that Miles Kinsell is THE criminal attorney to have represent you.”
