Protecting Your Rights With Assertive Criminal Defense
A conviction can mean having a criminal record and lifetime of prejudice against you. We know that law enforcement does not always get it right. Our goal to ensure that the justice system works for you. Your arrest may be the result of:

- False arrest
- Use of excessive force
When charges are based on false allegations, working with an experienced criminal defense attorney can make a significant difference for you, your reputation, your relationships and your job.

There are myriad options such as dismissal, reduced sentencing, probation and alternative programs to pursue, but you need to act quickly. The sooner you contact a lawyer, the more likely you are to find witnesses and evidence that can help you in your case.
