Criminal Defense

Being convicted of a crime has dire, life-changing consequences not only for you, but for your family members. You may be sent to prison and have a stringent fine imposed. Even if you are able to avoid prison, the conviction will likely stay on your record forever. You may lose your job and find it almost impossible to find another one. You may lose your home and your family. The very act of having to defend yourself is overwhelming.
