Why You Need a Seasoned Criminal Defender

Not only can criminal charges threaten you with jail or prison time, heavy fines, lengthy and restrictive probation, and other court-ordered actions but a conviction will result in a permanent criminal record. Your record will be accessible through any routine background check. This means it will be available to present and future employers, professional licensing boards, landlords, and others. Because of this, you could be turned down for present or future life opportunities. 

Living with a tarnished reputation and a criminal record can be difficult at best. That is why you need to ensure that you have representation dedicated to protecting your rights and seeking your best interests, whether through negotiations with prosecutors or at trial in the criminal courts. Our team has decades of experience handling criminal cases in court as well as providing proactive intervention in criminal investigations and seeking dropped charges, dismissed cases, or reduced charges when negotiating with prosecutors.
