The Stakes Are High

If you have been charged with homicide, drug trafficking, or some other serious felony, you probably already know how serious the situation is. If you are convicted, potential prison time, fines, and collateral consequences await you. Your future could be severely compromised by a felony conviction.

Even if you are dealing with a petty misdemeanor or a traffic violation, the situation might be more serious than you realize. Repeated simple traffic violations could lead to a suspended driver’s license, for example. Further, a criminal conviction has the potential of following you for the rest of your life, making it difficult to secure employment or housing.

Our attorneys understand the stakes in criminal defense, and we take an aggressive, strategic approach to protecting your rights and protecting your future.
