Criminal Defense



Criminal Defense

When you or a loved one is charged with a crime, it is an extremely daunting and frightening time. Criminal charges and convictions can have devastating impacts upon your life. You may be fired from your job. You could hurt your ability to get employment in the future. Most importantly, you could lose your freedom. It can seem like everyone is against you. A person charged with a crime may feel powerless, friendless, and alone. The police are against them. The judge is against them. The prosecutor, whose job it is to get a conviction, is certainly not on his/her side. The situation can feel hopeless, but you do not need to face the system without trusted and zealous counsel. Good counsel can make all of the difference. A highly competent legal advocate is crucial in order to protect you against the vast government resources that are lining up to convict you.
