Criminal Defense

If you have been accused of a crime, it is critical that you seek the advice of a criminal defense lawyer immediately. The penalties for criminal offenses continue to become more severe and prosecutors are under ever-increasing pressure to get convictions. Having the right representation on your side can go a long way toward ensuring a positive result in your case.


Driving Under the Influence or Driving While Intoxicated

A DUI or DWI charge requires quick action. You only have 15 days to request a hearing on the issue, in writing, after receiving notice of suspension (generally received on the day of arrest) otherwise your license will automatically be suspended.

If you are convicted of a DWI/DUI, you will face a variety of heavy penalties, including:

  • Suspension or loss of license
  • Increased insurance rates
  • Community service
  • Possible jail time
  • Alcohol assessment and treatment
  • Probation
  • Vehicle immobilization or forfeiture
  • Serious fines
  • Possible job loss
  • Permanent Criminal Record

Expunctions

A criminal charge or conviction can seriously affect your career and future. Though you may have been found guilty of a crime, you still have the right to your privacy.

Expunction removes all criminal arrests and charges from your record as if they never happened. To qualify for expunction, you must have been acquitted, found not guilty, or granted a pardon by the governor of the state in which you reside. You can also qualify if you were arrested but not prosecuted, or if the indictment was dismissed.
