A criminal conviction can alter your life in many ways. A criminal conviction can lead to fines, probation and even jail depending on the charge. A criminal conviction could also keep you from driving, damage your professional opportunities and harm your reputation in your community. If you are not a U.S. citizen, a criminal conviction can have serious consequences for your immigration status and could lead to removal from the United States.
If arrested, you should seek competent legal counsel regardless of the charges. A guilty plea may appear quicker and less expensive, but the potential consequences can be severe. We have many years of experience representing people charged with criminal offenses. Don’t go with the cheapest. Seek competent counsel.
