Most individuals who are accused of a crime never see it coming. If you are convicted of a criminal offense, it could impact your career, educational opportunities, and hamper other rights and privileges that you have come to rely on. No matter what type of case you have, there is help available. Our team of award winning criminal defense attorneys will guide you through the process, explain your options and give you the best chance of keeping a criminal conviction off your record.
We start all our criminal cases with a detailed client interview. We want to know exactly what happened from our client’s perspective and any special concerns they have. Having this information is important to providing effective representation, because police reports and witness statements often misrepresent what actually happened. Many of our clients are good people who have found themselves in need of a second chance. Others have been falsely accused and need to clear their name. No matter which scenario applies, we want to do our best to safeguard our client’s future.

HIRING AN ATTORNEY PROTECTS YOUR RIGHTS
Some people wrongfully believe that hiring an attorney could be seen as an admission of guilt, this could not be further from the truth. Many times, people will waive their right to have legal counsel present during questioning and they subsequently make statements against their interest. In the justice system, you are presumed innocent and you have the right to remain silent. It is the prosecution’s burden to prove you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Hiring an attorney is the best way to protect your rights and you should never consent to being questioned without an attorney present.
