Criminal Defense

Just being under investigation for a criminal offense is daunting and life-changing. Once you are officially charged, you will likely be arrested. You need to contact a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible so you can begin preparing your defense. Depending on the nature of the charges, your attorney can work with the prosecutor and present your case to the court for the lowest possible bail.

After you are charged, the risk of conviction is great. More criminal defendants are convicted at trial than are acquitted. You may be facing years in custody, high penalties and orders of restitution. If and when you are released, you may be on parole for years and have limitations placed on your life as to where you can live and travel. You will have a permanent criminal record, which will make it difficult for you to find a job, housing or even to obtain a car loan.

He will confidentially discuss your case with you, obtain all police and investigative reports and interview witnesses. He knows when consultants or experts are needed.
