If you are charged with a criminal offense, you need an experienced attorney. All criminal offense punishments are significant. Even if you expect a suspended sentence or fine that you can easily afford, the judge, prosecutor or jury may still succeed in increasing your sentence beyond anticipated levels. And even minor charges, if they lead to a conviction, will end up on your criminal record where they can do considerable damage in the workplace, during mortgage application processes, and in divorce and custody proceedings.
Do not take chances with your future, and do not gamble with your liberty. If you face criminal charges, a professional attorney can help you. Attorney knows criminal law and how the court systems function. He can guide you through any criminal case, from your initial arrest to your trial or plea bargain. He has defended thousands of accused clients and has tried hundreds of cases to verdict.
How Experience Helps.
We have defended clients in every type of felony category, ranging from aggravated assault to homicide. We know that police don’t always tell the truth or get facts correct. We know that police procedures are often handled incorrectly or illegally. And we know which evidence is admissible and which isn’t. There are two sides to every account of events, and we are skilled in pointing out and proving weaknesses in the prosecution’s case and arguing for dismissal of charges or a reduced sentence that will save you money and time served.
Our experience also extends to familiarity with local courts, court rules and court staff. At the Law Office, we can also use mitigating factors from your background and from the steps you take after your arrest to strengthen your case and argue for leniency.
