Legal dilemmas threaten your personal freedom, your ability to support your family, your dignity, and your reputation in the community. The results can permanently change your entire life. It is crucial that you pick the right attorney to effectively represent you and personally guide you. Experience and understanding are the qualities you want in selecting someone to defend you.
Protect Your Rights -- Before you plead guilty to a crime, learn your rights and understand your options by speaking with me about your situation. A conviction, even for a misdemeanor, will create a criminal record that is likely to stay with you forever. The stigma of a conviction of any kind is a scarlet letter on your school and employment applications. Having a criminal conviction can damage your community reputation, jeopardize your professional license and can even be used against you in a divorce or civil proceeding. Now is the time to protect your future.
A Strong Defense is Important to Your Case
Individuals convicted of a crime whether through their own admission of guilt or through the determination of a jury are subject to fines, imprisonment, probation and community service, among other penalties.Â Defending your criminal case in the strongest possible way is critical to your freedom, your livelihood and your future.
The outcome of any criminal case depends upon the facts surrounding the crime charged, the strength of the evidence, the legal validity of law enforcement and courtroom procedure and the goals and strategy of the government and defense. I will navigate you through this complicated legal process.
