Criminal defense law
Experts you can trust


Many terrifying thoughts race through your mind when you’re sitting in the back of a police car with your hands cuffed behind your back. Will you go to jail? How will this affect your job? What about your family? Or even your finances? Do you have a future anymore?

There’s good reason to worry because even with a minor criminal charge, it can leave you spending time behind bars. Not to mention that nearly all criminal convictions come with hefty fines. The charges will end up being on your criminal record for years, and others, such as sexual offenses, carry a lifetime of stigma.
