Being charged with a crime is one of the most difficult situations that you will probably ever face in your lifetime.
Depending on the nature of the charges, if convicted, you can possibly face prison or jail time; fines and fees; probation; house arrest; loss of employment; loss of gun rights, suspension of driving privileges; and deportation in the case of a non-citizens. More troubling, a criminal conviction can follow you for years, damaging your personal and professional reputation, adversely affecting educational opportunities, loss of job opportunities, and even loss of valuable time with loved ones.
The police and prosecution begin building evidence against you from the moment that you are arrested or read you your rights, and you should have an experienced criminal defense attorney to educate you about your rights and defend against the criminal charges.

Working together, we will develop a strategy to fight the charges.
