Delaware Criminal Defense Lawyer

  • Are you or a loved one charged with a crime in Delaware?
  • Are you under investigation by a law enforcement agency in the State of Delaware?

Right now, you may be at a low point in your life and not know what to do. You may be worried that your job, your career and your reputation are on the line. You want to do all you can to protect yourself but do not know where to turn.

There is good news. In the Delaware legal system, a good criminal defense lawyer can make the difference. You can WIN criminal cases in the State of Delaware. I have been involved in cases where the evidence against the defendant seemed insurmountable, but somehow, some way we found a hole in the prosecution's case that gave us a window of opportunity.*

Many people do not realize that choosing their lawyer could be one of the most important decisions in their life. It is extremely important to choose wisely. Your lawyer will be your voice on what could be the most important thing in your life. You should hire a defense attorney that has the skill and courage to effectively try a criminal case. Prosecutors all share one thing in common: they hate to lose. If the State knows your attorney is a serious trial lawyer you will probably get a better plea offer or even have charges withdrawn.

A Real Trial Lawyer

My name is Jason Antoine and I am a criminal trial lawyer in the State of Delaware. For past two decades I have dedicated myself to the art of trial practice which has been my passion and obsession. I thrive on taking difficult cases and solving difficult problems for my clients. Early in my career I studied and used the theories of the great trial lawyers such as Gerry Spence, Johnny Cochran, and Roy Black. I applied their teachings to my everyday courtroom practice and was amazed at the results I was getting for my clients.*

I have been recognized by:

  • Superlawyers – Top Rated Criminal Defense Attorney in Wilmington, DE
  • AVVO Rating of 10 out of 10 Superb
  • National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Trial Lawyer

My office is equipped to handle everything from high profile federal criminal prosecutions to DUI offenses. As a Delaware criminal defense lawyer, I represent people accused in New Castle and Kent Counties of the following crimes:

Why Hire Me to Represent You in Your Criminal Case?
  • My results speak for themselves.* I invite you to click on the link to view my reviews on AVVO or Google. I have secured acquittals in high stakes criminal cases and have a track record of trial excellence.* When I was a prosecutor in Pennsylvania I had over a 99% conviction rate. During my time as a DUI prosecutor, I never lost a DUI prosecution or trial.* If you can find a Wilmington criminal defense attorney in his late-30's with more trial success, don't hire me, hire them.

  • I am a former prosecutor. I have a diverse background. I worked as a prosecutor in Pennsylvania and worked at the Delaware Attorney General's Office during law school. As a former Assistant District Attorney, I prosecuted 203 criminal cases with only 1 acquittal. I had a conviction rate of over 99%. I was promoted to trying felony cases a month out of law school and won 9 of 10 jury trials in my first year. I am lucky that I found my calling early in my career. During my time as a DUI prosecutor, I never lost a DUI prosecution or trial.*

  • Never Give Up Attitude.* As Winston Churchill said, "never give in and never give up in anything great or small." Never giving in is the single most important personality trait of a defense attorney you should consider when making your decision. I have learned it is usually not the attorney with the highest IQ or the more articulate attorney that wins the case, it is the attorney that is passionate about his cause and client and will not quit. I believe that prosecutors can only defeat you if you let them. Whatever clever argument the prosecutors make, my rebuttals, objections and appeals will follow.

Contact My Office
