I am criminal defense attorney John Garey. I opened the Law Office of John R. Garey on The Green in historic downtown Dover after being a prosecutor for the Department of Justice in Kent and Sussex counties for more than 15 years.
My experience as a prosecutor gives your case an edge, not only because of my legal knowledge of the criminal justice system, but also because of how I prepare and argue your case to help you get the best possible outcome in your criminal defense matter.

Good defense starts by avoiding preconceived notions about people. People charged with a crime are typically good people who have made a bad mistake. I fight to protect the rights and futures of good people with good families and good jobs.
