Criminal Defense

If you or a loved one has been arrested, it is important that you immediately speak with a criminal defense lawyer. Being charged with a crime can have a tremendous impact on an individual. Should that charge lead to a conviction, the effects can be devastating and permanent. With the real possibilities of incarceration and/or probation, it is important to have a well-trained and skilled attorney on your side.
