"Facing the power and might of police, prosecutors and courts can be an intimidating and daunting prospect. Choosing the right criminal defense attorney is one of the most important decisions one will make because the outcome of a criminal charge could affect you for the rest of your life. A criminal conviction is a public record, so think how this will impact your life, personally and professionally."
AS YOUR ATTORNEY, I CAN:

•help you to cope with feelings of fear, embarrassment or loss of self-esteem that a criminal charge can tend to produce in many people.
