Practice Areas


    When you are the subject of a police investigation or have been arrested, it is a life-changing experience, one in which you need expert guidance and advice. Joe Megale has 30 years experience, initially as a prosecutor, and for the last 27 years, defending criminal cases in both the felony and misdemeanor courts.


    DWI enforcement has gotten more strict than ever before. The government is seizing all vehicles in DWI cases and seeking forfeiture of them as an additional sanction. The government has hired law firms to actually begin the lawsuit for forfeiture immediately after an arrest is made. Those lawyers hired by the county will negotiate with defense lawyers for release of the vehicles, but their criteria have grown more strict with each passing day.


    Domestic Violence cases are treated differently from every other type of case in the criminal courthouse. They are unique in that the victim and the defendant not only know each other, but there either is, or there once was, a loving relationship. A large majority of these victims were angry enough to call the police, but later decline to cooperate in the prosecution of their loved one. The District Attorney is very strict with these cases, which is understandable.
