WHEN TO CONTACT A LAWYER

If you are arrested or charged with a crime, it is important that you know your rights. Even if you are innocent, you should have an attorney present to ensure your rights are protected.
Innocent people do go to jail or face severe penalties with long lasting consequences.
You need someone by your side who is knowledgeable, experienced, and invested in a successful outcome. Here's how I can help:

1Protect Against Self Incrimination
It is crucial to immediately call a lawyer if the police want to talk with you. Do not talk with the police to explain your side until you have had a chance to talk with a skilled attorney. This one mistake can lead to a conviction before your case is even tried. As an experienced criminal defense attorney, I can protect your rights and advise you to answer or refrain from answering certain questions. Police may attempt to obtain incriminating evidence from you. Anything you say will be used against you.
2Safeguard Against Illegal Search and Seizure
If you have had incriminating evidence illegally seized from your person or property, I can fight to have the wrongfully obtained evidence thrown out.
3Protect Against Misidentification
If you feel you were falsely identified or railroaded by the authorities, I can ensure certain safeguards were in place. I can hold authorities accountable for overly suggestive or unconstitutional identification processes.
4Get the Best Possible Result
I can guide you in making the decision to plea bargain or go to trial. Together, we will evaluate risks and benefits, and proceed according to your informed decision.
5Represent You In Court
I will stand with you in court and aggressively represent you at all stages including: preliminary hearings, arraignment, pre- trial hearings, motion hearings, and trial.
