Strong Defense Against Criminal Charges

If you face criminal charges, the consequences can be severe. Whether it is a first-time drunken driving charge, an assault or a drug crime charge, the outcome of your case can impact you and your family for the rest of your life.

I am Carl Jensen Jr., an experienced criminal defense attorney with a proven record of protecting clients' rights effectively and pursuing the best possible outcome. From my office in Great Falls, I serve clients throughout central Montana. Give me a call today to discuss your specific situation.

Talk With A Lawyer First

I always tell clients to talk to a lawyer first. If you are arrested or even questioned as a suspect in a crime, it is critical that you speak with an experienced criminal defense lawyer before answering police investigators' questions. Your comments can be misconstrued, or you may say something you did not mean. Once police have your statements on record, it is difficult to change your story, even if it is more accurate.

What Charges Are You Facing?

I defend clients against a full range of criminal charges. This includes:

I also have experience defending members of the military in court-martial proceedings.

How My Experience Can Benefit You

It has been my experience over 20 years of practicing law that most people who face criminal charges do so only once or twice in their lifetime. If you have been arrested and charged with a crime, you no doubt are nervous about the consequences and hopeful there is such a thing as a second chance.

If you select me to represent you, you work with me from the initial consultation until the resolution of your case — and through an appeal if necessary. I do not hand off cases to a junior attorney or a paralegal.

Although I have handled thousands of cases, I realize that each one is unique. I take the time to review every aspect of your arrest and make sure you understand all of your options so that you can be involved in the decision-making process.

I use my negotiation skills to bring many of my cases to an efficient and successful resolution without going to trial. However, if a fair agreement cannot be reached and the facts of your case warrant it, I am fully capable of arguing on your behalf in court.
