We can help you. Call us today. (907) 376-2800

We can help you with any of the following: 

Domestic Violence Offenses

Domestic violence cases are more complicated than he-said, she-said accusations. Our office believes that many situations are best served not by a resolution in criminal court, but by addressing the root issues of the interpersonal conflict through constructive methods such as counseling and mediation. We seek to find constructive and healthy solutions that are designed to strengthen relationships, not alienate the parties. Domestic violence convictions carry a host of negative consequences that can include job loss, inability to obtain certain types of employment, restrictions on coaching youth sports, loss of professional licensure, loss of the right to possess firearms (even for hunting or protection) and possible deportation for non-citizens. Aside from helping the parties move forward in a healthy way, we seek resolutions that do not involve domestic violence convictions for our clients.


Drug Offenses 

We represent people charged with all types of drug offenses, including trafficking, manufacturing, drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. Like DWI, drug convictions can have serious consequences, including loss of student financial aid and even removal from the country for immigrants. Drug offenses are frequently fueled by an addiction, and we look not only at the charged offense, but also at underlying addiction issues. Over the years, we have helped countless clients (including many juveniles) face and overcome addiction to allow them to live their lives without the physical, emotional and financial costs that are associated with drug dependency. Apart from addressing addiction, even though it is not always possible, our primary goal is to resolve drug cases without our clients being convicted of a drug crime.

Juvenile Offenses

Our philosophy in juvenile cases is to prevent youthful indiscretion from impairing the bright futures of our young clients.  At the same time, we think it is important for our juvenile clients to realize the seriousness of their situations.  We impress upon our clients the correlation between their decisions and the consequences of bad decisions for their future dreams and aspirations.  The frank discussions that we have with our young clients and their parents are designed to resolve issues in a positive manner. Juvenile crimes are handled differently from state to state and in Alaska, persons under the age of 18 years old are required to have legal representation. Juveniles are not permitted to represent themselves in court, they must obtain an attorney. Most juvenile cases are tried in a juvenile court rather than in the court systems that exist for adults. Greg has years of experience in this type of law. If you need him, please call today. 907-376-2800


Sex Offenses

There is perhaps nothing more serious than being accused of a sex crime. Sex offense cases have complicated issues like forensic DNA analysis, the use of unacceptable methods by the police in obtaining accusations, the motivation of individuals making an allegation and the coercion of children by others who would benefit from a false accusation. Sex offense convictions have profound lifetime consequences, even when a client is not imprisoned. Sex offender registration can be a lifetime requirement that makes an offender a pariah in the community. Employment is difficult at best and it is often impossible to obtain a well-paying job. Housing opportunities are severely limited. At the Law Office of Greg Parvin, we not only represent people accused of sex offenses, but we also represent individuals in connection with sex offender registration issues, parole hearings and other matters resulting from the collateral damage of sex offense convictions. 

Violent Crimes

We have extensive experience and success at defending all forms of violent crime offenses, including murder, vehicular homicide, voluntary manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter, kidnapping, aggravated battery, aggravated battery on a peace officer, aggravated battery on a household member, aggravated assault, aggravated assault on a peace officer, aggravated assault on a household member, criminal sexual penetration of adults and minors, criminal sexual contact of adults and minors, battery, battery on a peace officer, battery on a household member, assault, assault on a peace officer and assault on a household member.  We have particular expertise in understanding cutting edge scientific methods and solving complicated forensic issues that frequently hold the key to successfully representing clients on violent crime offense charges. If you are being charged with a serious crime, call us right away. (907) 376-2800


White Collar Crimes

Greg Parvin is uniquely qualified in the area of white collar crime both by qualification and experience. His office has represented many individuals and corporations, including hospitals, physicians, contractors, construction companies, governmental employees, accountants and other professionals in a multitude of white collar areas.  These areas include:

  • Tax evasion

  • Embezzlement

  • Securities fraud

  • Public official/governmental corruption

  • Medicare/Medicaid fraud

  • Corporate fraud

  • Insurance fraud

  • Mortgage fraud

  • Bribery

  • Forgery

  • Identity theft

  • Other economic crimes



Theft is the illegal act of taking someone’s property without consent. Different types of theft crimes include identity theft, auto theft, and burglary. The seriousness of the offense and the penalties are affected by the value of the property taken, if any other criminal offenses occurred in order to execute the theft, and if the use of deadly weapons or force was used. Greg understands the seriousness of the charges. If you are accused of committing a theft crime, we can explain your legal options and guide you through the court process.


Assault and Battery

Being charged with assault can be very stressful. It can have a negative impact on your life in many ways. Assault is defined as causing another person to be reasonably apprehensive of imminent offensive or harmful contact. Charges may be included with battery charges. Greg will use an effective legal strategy to help you from receiving a negative outcome in the case. Battery is unlawfully touching or hitting another person in an offensive, rude, harmful, or forceful manner. Actual physical contact must have occurred. The accused must have intentionally touched the other person. Battery involves physical contact with a person. Since battery is a violent crime, there are serious consequences if a person is convicted. If you are charged with battery, seeking an experienced criminal defense lawyer will greatly improve your chances of successfully defending the charges against you. Protect yourself and your rights by retaining the Law Office of Gregory Parvin.


If you are being accused of committing fraud, you deserve to have a legal advocate fighting for you. Oftentimes, people are charged and convicted of crimes because they were not aware of their rights. Due to the severity of penalties that are associated with fraud, you should retain a knowledgeable attorney like Greg who will protect your rights and preserve your legal options. The prosecutors have the burden of proof in fraud cases. These types of cases tend to be difficult to prove since it requires not only showing that the accused intentionally deceived someone but also showing that the victim relied on specific misstatements. Greg will structure a defensive strategy that shows a lack of intent to manipulate or deceive the victim. Based on the facts, we may also dispute the victim’s actual reliance on the information received. During legal proceedings, we would contest the prosecutor’s ability to sufficiently prove all elements of the fraud charges. Give us a call at 907-376-2800. We can help. 


Fish and Game Violations 

As Alaskans, we are blessed with an abundance of fish and wildlife. Some sportsmen however, are accused of violating hunting and fishing laws while enjoying our beautiful countryside. Whatever the nature of the charge you face, you should not take it lightly. If convicted, you could face the prospect of jail time and a permanent criminal record. You should obtain the services of an experienced defense attorney. an attorney with a reputation for aggressive, results-oriented representation. Our office has a record of obtaining good results for clients accused of fish and game violations and works hard to obtain the best possible outcome for you. Whenever possible, Greg will seek to obtain a dismissal of the charge or an acceptable plea agreement that holds open the possibility of an eventual expungement .


Even a simple misdemeanor such as hunting without a license or trespassing can leave a lasting stain on your record. A felony crime such as poaching on federal land or a gun charge has much more serious consequences. Don’t take chances with your freedom or your future. Call us today at 907-376-2800. We can help you. 


Probation Violations

Probation is often offered as a compromise to first-time offenders and others who a court feels would best be served by it rather than serving time.  Probation allows you to skip out on any potential jail or prison time in exchange for weekly or monthly reporting and evident signs of rehabilitation. It is given as an alternative form of sentencing to defendants who appear as though they can amend their ways, or complete rehabilitation.  When a judge agrees to it as a means of punishment, the judge also assigns a probation officer to you, who is in charge of ensuring you abide by the terms of it.  You will have to regularly meet with this person to ensure you are meeting the terms of your probation.  If you miss these meetings you can be liable for a violation, which is often the leading cause of probation violations.

This violation can occur not only if you violate the terms of your probation, but additionally, if any of the following occur:


  • You are arrested for a new offense

  • You fail a drug test

  • You are convicted of a new offense

  • You fail to pay court fees

  • You fail to participate in court-ordered rehabilitation programs such as community service or substance abuse centers

  • You leave the city without court permission

  • You violate any curfews currently in place



If you have been charged with this type of violation, call our office today. Greg will devise a strategy to ensure you do not receive heightened penalties. Call us today at (907) 376-2800 for a FREE consult.
