Defense Against A Wide Variety Of Criminal Charges And Offenses

A felony conviction on your record can cause long term serious employment problems including loss of voting rights. Even a misdemeanor can cause unanticipated problems that could alter your future.
Typically, employers will run both a criminal background check and a driving record check in which a misdemeanor or felony conviction on your record could prevent you from obtaining the job you worked so hard to get. Therefore, you must be very careful what you plead guilty to, even if there is no jail time. Contact us today before you make a decision that could harm your future.
While it is true that you come to court in a cloak of innocence, juries can find that presumption very difficult to overcome. Remember that everything you say can and will be used against you. It is usually best not to speak to the authorities until you seek counsel.
