Being arrested and charged with a crime is a serious matter. A person facing criminal charges risks severe penalties and consequences, such as jail time, having a criminal record, mandatory registrations, and loss of future job prospects. Criminal charges of any nature call for the legal advice of a qualified criminal defense attorney who can protect your rights and secure the best possible outcome for your case. Our job is the following:
(1) Help you understand the nature of the charges filed by the prosecution, the range of potential penalties, as well as possible defenses and mitigations.
(2) Obtain and carefully review all of the government’s evidence against you and conduct further private investigation when needed.
(3) Seek dismissal of your criminal charges or negotiate a fair plea bargain. Reduce your charge to a lesser offense (i.e. from a felony to a misdemeanor), lessen the severity of the punishment for the crime, reduce or eliminate jail time (i.e. via house arrest or work program),
(4) When a fair resolution is not possible, prepare for trial and develop a sound defense strategy for your case.
