A Strong Defense For Criminal Charges

Any criminal arrest is serious. The arrest process, booking, fingerprinting and brief jail stay may just be the beginning. If it is your first time, you may be overwhelmed and confused.

Additionally, during the arrest, there is no one on your side. The police, clerks, investigators and prosecutors all have one goal: your conviction. If convicted, it goes on your criminal record for life and can affect many liberties. Obtaining employment, a loan, housing and acceptance into college will be difficult.
