Have you been arrested?

Following an arrest, you can end up spending up to 24 hours in jail until you are brought before a judge. Any type of criminal accusations can have extremely negative consequences, and affect your job, schooling, community reputation and family life. Hiring a qualified defense lawyer will be key factor in how your case is resolved. Without skilled representation, your chances of a conviction will significantly increase. The penalties for a guilty verdict will depend on the specifics of your offense and your past criminal history. Incarceration is likely, especially if you have been charged with a felony or violent crime.

You can also be ordered to pay fines and victim restitution. If you are an immigrant, a conviction for a criminal offense could result in deportation and removal. I will give you an honest assessment of your legal situation and discuss the best way to address the charges you are facing. Whether you want to pursue a case dismissal, plea bargain or trial, I will do everything I can to make the process as painless as possible. My rates are reasonable and, if necessary, I will even work out a payment plan so that you get the help you need.
