Frequently Asked Questions
How much do you charge?

When should I contact a criminal lawyer?
If you have been arrested, the police should tell you: “you have the right to remain silent” and “you have the right to an attorney”. You should waste no time in contacting an attorney. The sooner you take action, the more time will be on your side to craft the best defense.
Should I hire a lawyer for a small charge?
Even if you have been charged with a misdemeanor, a conviction on that offense could follow you for the rest of your life. Don’t let a small infraction impact your life or even your future employment opportunities. Take the time to talk with a lawyer about what can be done to thoroughly defend yourself in any criminal charge (big or small).
