Fairbanks Criminal Defense Lawyer

Criminal Defense Lawyer Serving Alaska & Washington

When people are facing legal trouble in Fairbanks, they turn to me—Frank Spaulding, founder of Spaulding Law P.C. As a Fairbanks criminal defense attorney, I provide effective defense for the accused in Alaska and Washington. For more than a decade, I've been resolving people's legal challenges in Interior Alaska. I have successfully handled hundreds of cases personally, taking them to trial when necessary. I've helped a great many people get their charges dismissed or reduced, or winning acquittals at trial for DUI, domestic violence, drug crimes, and more. In either case, I work to protect your rights, your freedom, and help you to protect your future.

Technology has changed important aspects of criminal defense. If you are charged with a misdemeanor, you may not have to set foot in a courthouse unless you want to. Learn more on my misdemeanor defense page.

People call me because they need someone who understands their needs and the obstacles they're facing. As a former prosecutor, my job was knowing how to get a conviction. That experience enables me to effectively defend my clients today. I know what strategies and tactics the state is likely to use against you, and I have the resources and experience to challenge their every move. It's not enough to just hire a local lawyer—you need a proven Alaskan criminal attorney who has real trial experience.

If you need help, give me a call at (907) 312-1300. We get back to our clients within 24 hours and can handle many aspects of your case quickly by phone or over the computer.
