Retaining the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney is one of the best actions you can take when you have been arrested for a criminal offense. The penalties for a guilty verdict in a criminal case will depend on the seriousness of the charges, and can include jail time fines, license suspension, asset seizure and court-ordered alcohol or drug treatment. Your life will never be the same following a guilty verdict, even in cases involving misdemeanor crimes. Our firm understands the severe consequences that can result from a conviction, and we will fight hard to prevent a guilty verdict.
