Being charged with a crime is a frightening experience, whether it is a misdemeanor or a felony charge.

Most people charged with a criminal offense usually have no real understanding of criminal law and the justice system. Often they feel hopeless and just want to “get it over with”. Consequently, they don’t consult with a criminal defense lawyer to evaluate their options.

In reality, very few criminal cases are open-and-shut. A savvy criminal defense attorney will be alert to the many options available to help you avoid the harsh consequences of a criminal conviction.

The first court appearance (arraignment) in a criminal case takes place before you know it, leaving little time for obtaining legal advice from a qualified criminal defense attorney.

Acting fast is crucial. You need to take action now.
