Criminal Law

Have you been accused of a crime?

No one plans on being charged with a crime. Mistakes happen. Unfortunately, the sentencing consequences for an error or bad choice can be grave — high fines, incarceration, a criminal record that you cannot expunge, and for those who are not United States citizens, deportation. We will challenge the evidence and the charges against you. If you feel you were unfairly charged, we will fight for you in court. If you would prefer to plea bargain, we will work to reduce the penalties to include a smaller jail sentence, lower fines, or a diversionary program.
