In her practice, Attorney Longton has represented thousands of clients in criminal defense matters, including clients who have been charged with misdemeanors or felonies, including operating under the influence, assault and battery, vehicular homicide, fraud and other white collar crimes, breaking and entering, sexual assault, firearms charges as well as drug possession, distribution and trafficking.

Attorney Longton also has significant experience in the representation of juveniles and specializes in the unique issues facing college students, particularly in disciplinary cases involving allegations of sexual assault.  Attorney Longton is frequently consulted by attorneys from across the country regarding Title IX investigations of sexual assault and the unique issues facing accused college students. 

Attorney Longton also has extensive civil litigation experience regarding personal injuries. Attorney Longton helps people who have been harmed by the negligence of others in cases involving motor vehicle accidents, premises liability (including slip and falls), defective medical devices and other consumer products as well as workplace and construction site accidents.
