Aggressive Criminal Defense Attorney Protecting The Rights Of Wise County Clients

If you have been arrested, you need to secure an exceptional criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. Depending on the alleged crime, you could be facing time in prison, exorbitant fines, limited future employment and housing opportunities, and social stigma. The criminal defense team at the Law Office of Kern and Wilkens, PC has nearly 50 years’ combined experience and can protect your rights going forth.

Our Cases

Though each case is different, we expend the same high level of service on each one. Our clients come to us in all states — whether facing minor infractions such as the illegal disposal of tires, or first-degree capital murder. We are skilled trial lawyers who refuse to back down to any legal challenge. Cases we typically handle include:

  • Assault & Battery
