Work With Truly Experienced Criminal Defense Attorneys
Being charged with a crime, whether a misdemeanor or a felony, can negatively affect every aspect of your life. Being convicted of criminal charges is even worse. A criminal record can stand between you and your chosen career, the ability to find housing and distract from your life goals. A criminal charge or conviction may also have immigration consequences, financial consequences, affect your marriage, or interfere with your ability to parent and support your children. Dealing with the consequences of a criminal charge may seem like an uphill climb, but our criminal law attorneys may be able to help you move forward with a not-guilty verdict, a plea deal for minimized penalties, or in some cases, we can even help you get your criminal record expunged (erased).

As with most legal matters, getting in touch with an attorney promptly is key to creating the best possible defense. A lawyer can help you understand when, if, and how you should speak to the prosecutor and any investigators. A lawyer will go with you to any interviews and help protect your rights. A good criminal defense lawyer can make sure only the right kind of evidence, if any, is used in your case, and that the prosecutors follow the law. Often, the right lawyer can negotiate a more favorable outcome for your case than you might get if you went to trial. For example, you may be able to improve the outcome of your drug crime case by entering into drug dependency treatment before you go before a prosecutor or judge.
