The Law Office of Cynthia A. Viol


If the State has accused you of a sex crime and you are seeking justice, look no more.  I am an experienced and aggressive trial lawyer who has devoted the past six years to defending citizens accused of sex crimes.  Make no mistake.  You are in serious trouble and you need a lawyer who has both the experience and the desire to ensure that your rights are protected and you receive the justice you seek.

Since entering private practice in October of 2007, I have tried three jury trials.  All three defendants were acquitted--found not guilty--by Oklahoma juries in 3 different counties:  forcible oral sodomy, lewd acts with a child and lewd proposals in Cleveland County, possession of a firearm after conviction of a felony after conviction of two or more prior felonies in Oklahoma County and rape in the first degree by instrumentation and sexual abuse in Logan County.   I am very pleased all three clients are home with their families and not guests of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.  

I defend citizens accused of committing sex crimes and other serious felony offenses:

  • Free consultations
  • Aggressive & zealous representation
  • Payment Plans available

My name is Cynthia A. Viol and I am  an experienced and aggressive trial lawyer. If the State is accusing you of a sex crime, you are in serious trouble.  The stakes are very high.  The defense of sex crimes cases requires a defense attorney with the specialized experience, knowledge, and desire to aggressively fight for your rights, your life, and justice.

The simple truth is that very few criminal defense lawyers have the necessary trial experience or specialized knowledge needed to defend against  an accusation of sexual misconduct.  Be sure the lawyer you hire has handled many sex crimes cases.  And most important--make sure the lawyer you hire is an experienced trial lawyer.  Plea-bargaining in sex crimes cases is a very difficult business.  Most of the plea bargain recommendations the State offers involve prison time--substantial prison time.  And, under Oklahoma law, eighty-five (85%) percent of that sentence must be served before the inmate will be considered for parole or be allowed to accrue "good time" credits.  Even if the lawyer is able to negotiate a probated sentence, the citizen accused will be a "registered sex offender" for many, many years--maybe for life.  It is a taint which can never be erased.  The stakes are very high indeed.

I have the jury trial experience, specialized knowledge and the desire to fight and defend those accused of sex crimes.  I have been a lawyer for twenty-three (23) years.  I am licensed to practice law in Oklahoma and Texas.  I have been a criminal defense lawyer exclusively for the past twenty (20) years and during that time have tried ninety-six (96) jury trials--including twenty-one (21) sex crimes trials and three (3) death penalty trials.

Most of my career was spent in the public sector--defending indigent defendants in Dallas  and  Tarrant Counties (Texas), Texas prison inmates accused of committing felonies in prison, and Oklahoma County, Oklahoma (2000 - 2007). 

For the past six (6) years I have focused on the difficult issues involved in the defense of those accused of sex crimes. Since entering the private practice of law in October 2007, I have tried two (2) sex crimes cases to Oklahoma juries.  Both clients were found not guilty and are now home with their families.   I have been invited to speak at many legal seminars to share with other lawyers what I have learned about defending these most difficult of criminal cases.

I am a warrior child of the military--born and bred--the oldest of seven children.  My father taught us that the defense of our Constitutional rights was a cause worth fighting--and dying--for.  I have taken that lesson to heart.  It is the primary reason I have spent my legal career fighting for, and defending the rights of, those who the State seeks to deprive of their liberty or even their very life.

In 1999, I was fortunate enought to attend Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyer's College in Dubois, Wyoming.  I went to Wyoming to become the very best trial lawyer I could be.  For my clients and for myself.  It was an intensive five (5) week course.  I learned many valuable lessons but the most important lesson I learned was that, to be a true advocate for my clients, I must become an unrelenting "Warrior for Justice."  I strive every day to be worthy of that name. For my clients.  For myself.  For justice.

Services

Sex crimes are treated differently in the criminal justice system in Oklahoma and throughout the country.  Most criminal cases  are resolved through plea bargain negotiations.  Not sex crimes cases.  To successfully defend against a sex crime accusation, trial preparation must begin immediately!  While some of these cases can be resolved through plea bargaining, most cannot. 

Most criminal defense lawyers manage a high volume practice with the expectation that 90% or more of their cases will be resolved through plea bargaining.  I do not.  I am a trial lawyer.  I view every sex crime case as a jury trial--and prepare accordingly.  The sex crime accusation is an easy accusation to make and a difficult one to defend against.   The sooner you retain effective and aggressive legal representation, the greater the likelihood of success.
