Our Criminal Defense Practice Areas

At our firm, we are committed to delivering comprehensive legal assistance across various domains:

State Misdemeanors

These infractions are regarded as less severe than felonies but should not be underestimated. They encompass offenses like minor assault cases, retail theft, and possession of small amounts of drugs for personal use.


Felonies signify more critical violations, carrying over one year of imprisonment, substantial fines, and additional court mandates. These range from white-collar embezzlement to the severity of state or federal homicide charges.

Homicide and Murder

Facing allegations of taking a life is immensely serious. A conviction can mean lifelong imprisonment, sometimes without parole, subject to the specific details of the case.

White-Collar Crimes

Fraudulent financial activities designed to deceive, ranging from embezzlement to corporate fraud. These acts can be prosecuted mildly or severely depending on the jurisdiction and specifics of the crime.

Domestic Violence

Actions or threats against a domestic partner or family member are never taken lightly in court. Immediate legal counsel is vital to defend your rights. This includes cases involving the breach of protective boundaries like restraining orders.

Drug Crimes

Charges vary from minor possession to significant drug distribution operations, potentially escalating to federal criminal charges.


Driving under the influence is a distressing ordeal with serious repercussions, which may include revocation of driving privileges, fines, and more.

Federal Crimes

Crimes tried at the federal level could merit stricter punishment than similar state-level offenses, dramatically influencing your future.

Criminal Traffic Offenses

Traffic-related crimes such as leaving the scene of an accident, reckless driving, or operating a vehicle without a valid license could lead to jail time and substantial monetary penalties.

Firearm and Gun Crimes

Regulations surrounding the control, utilization, and commerce of firearms are strict in West Virginia. Non-compliance can have severe consequences.

Sex Crimes

Allegations pertaining to sexual misconduct are aggressively prosecuted, and conviction often comes with intense, long-lasting penalties, including federal charges.

Theft Crimes

Illegally appropriating another’s assets or services is a serious offense with the charge severity being contingent on the item’s value.

Violent Crimes

Crimes reflecting a disregard for human welfare, such as aggression-related offenses, burglary, armed robbery, abduction, manslaughter, and others are met with severe repercussions.

Cyber Crime

Illegal activities executed via the internet, including hacking, fraud, and online sexual offenses, can be governed by both state and federal laws and invite grave outcomes.


Collaborating with the intent to commit criminal acts is penalizable, sometimes more severely than the planned crime itself.

International Crimes

Offenses that transgress national boundaries necessitate a deep understanding of various legal frameworks. Our history includes managing complex cases internationally, including in the Bahamas, Canada, and the Middle East.

Through all stages of the legal process — from the initial accusation to inquiries, detainment, and facing formal charges — our team is relentless in advocating for your constitutional rights and strives vigorously to secure your best interests every step of the way.

Client Reviews

I had hired Mr. Logue a few years ago for my gf at the time for charges she had gotten before I had met her, for prostitution. Big mistake to date her and pay for her lawyer as we didn’t work out but Mr. Logue far exceeded expectations. He got nearly all charges in 2 separate cases dropped for her...


I was arrested on a felony 3 charge looking at at least up to 2 years in prison. County District Attorney didn't want to negotiate. After a lot of hard work, Sean was able to plead the case all the way down to just 90 days jail with a work release. Better deal than I realistically could have hoped...

Former Client

Mr. Logue took our son’s cases on very short notice (the first lawyer we hired wasn’t getting anywhere with either of the prosecutors and had actually turned one of the cases over to the court-appointed attorney). We hired Mr. Logue to go to trial if needed, but he worked with both prosecutors and...
