Criminal Defense

Your Future is at Stake. We Can Help!

When charged with a crime, most people know that they need to get legal representation as soon as possible.  For misdemeanor charges, however, some people make the mistake of believing they can handle it themselves because it’s “no big deal.”

This is a big mistake. Both felonies and misdemeanor offenses can have a very serious impact on your life today, and long into the future. So if you’re facing criminal charges of any type, it’s critical that you have a lawyer whose practice concentrates on criminal defense.

Nothing “Minor” About a Misdemeanor

Some crimes are always considered misdemeanors and others can be either a felony or a misdemeanor depending on the facts involved with the case.  The stakes are high in either case. Many misdemeanors, such as possession of certain drugs, some types of theft, reckless driving, assault, indecent exposure or public intoxication can have a serious impact on your career and your future. In some fields, you may not only lose your job, but also lose your licensing and right to practice. For those who are in college or university, these types of charges could get you kicked out of school. Even if your actual sentence does not involve any jail time or other serious consequences, the impact could be felt in many other areas of your life.

Felony Charges

A felony conviction can change the course of your entire life. Charges such as drug trafficking, vehicular homicide, racketeering, DUI or DUI Manslaughter and others carry long prison sentences. But the damage to your reputation and your career prospects can linger long after you’ve gotten out of prison. If you’re facing felony charges, you need to have a trusted and experienced defense attorney at your side immediately. Your future is on the line.

Federal Defense

When the United States government charges you with a crime, it can feel like the odds are stacked against you. Charges like fraud, racketeering, tax evasion, and more are very serious and carry heavy penalties. Beyond heavy fines and prison time, being convicted of a federal offense can cause irreparable damage to your reputation. If you are facing federal criminal charges, you need an experienced and knowledgeable defense attorney on your side.

All Criminal Charges are Serious

The bottom line here is that all criminal charges should be treated as very serious.  This is especially true for those with high profile careers such as doctors, professors, CEOs and others that need to have a clean reputation in order to perform their job duties.  A conviction or guilty plea for even a fairly minor incident can lead to losing your job and having difficulty finding good jobs in the future.

For many students attending college or university, it can result in losing scholarships or even being expelled from the school altogether. This, of course, can have a very negative impact on your future career opportunities.
