The consequences of a criminal conviction can be serious. When you have been charged of a crime, the hiring of an attorney is an important decision. It is crucial to obtain experienced and aggressive legal representation. We listen, advocate for you, and give you the legal representation needed at this difficult time. Simply put, we help people in trouble.
Whether you hold a professional license or are a father, mother, young adult or teenager accused of a crime, you are a valued client. A felony, misdemeanor or DUI conviction may have serious consequences including driving license and CDL suspension, loss of your professional license, and losing the right to carry a firearm or vote. A conviction can threaten employment, and even have a negative impact on child custody issues. The key is to get started early. It is imperative that you contact an attorney immediately to develop your defense and freeze the facts. You may need advice about collecting information that demonstrates your innocence.
Addressing the underlying issues which preceded the arrest is the key to success in many cases. For example, as a former felony prosecutor with many years as a criminal defense attorney, we have witnessed the consequences of alcohol and drug abuse. If substance abuse resulted in the arrest, we emphasize a solution which addresses the underlying issues before court. Many times there are alternatives to jail for persons with drug or alcohol problems. In many cases, the proactive strategies, decisions and choices of those accused of a crime can have a significant outcome on their case. In addition to criminal and DUI matters, we can also help with related issues such as administrative driving license suspensions, asset seizures and forfeitures. Injured by a drunk driver? We can also help.
