Personal Attention And A Professional Approach

Our clients are assured of working directly with Mr. Vance from the initial consultation through the resolution of their case. He will take the time to review the facts of your arrest and conduct his own investigation if necessary. He will discuss your objectives, help set realistic expectations and develop a sound legal strategy that is aimed at achieving the goals we set together. Our firm represents clients in a broad range of criminal matters, including:

  • Theft — Defense against shoplifting, burglary and related charges
  • Drug offenses — Defending individuals against drug charges ranging from felony and misdemeanor possession to drug manufacturing and trafficking
  • Assault — Domestic violence, battery and other violent crimes
  • Sex offenses — These cases are prosecuted aggressively, so you need a defense lawyer who is equally aggressive

We Are Always Prepared To Go To Trial

Too often in Mississippi criminal cases, a defendant is simply led through the system and not really defended. M. Darin Vance is a trial-tested attorney who is always prepared to advocate for clients in court if a fair resolution cannot be reached through negotiation.
