About The Firm

A courtroom after an arrest is a frightening place. It is familiar only in the sense that you have seen on TV or at movies where events take place involving judges and attorneys. The courthouse in Morgan County won't look like those, and for you, the outcome is very different. It is all too real; the judge you face can send you to jail or prison.

Our attorney at The Gaunt Law Office is no stranger to the courtroom. Joseph Gaunt is a former prosecutor who has participated in hundreds of trials, motions, arraignments, and sentencing hearings. We understand the procedures and are not intimidated by the surroundings. We provide the experienced representation you need while facing any criminal charge.
