Frequently Asked QuestionsCommon Questions Answered
Q:I’ve been contacted by police regarding an alleged crime. Should I speak to them?
A:Absolutely not. It is strongly advised that you invoke your right to remain silent until you have the chance to speak to a criminal defense attorney. What you say WILL be used against you.
Q:My charges are minor. Do I still need an attorney?
A:Yes. Regardless of how insignificant you think the charges against you are, you should at least consult with a criminal defense attorney. Even the consequences of a misdemeanor can haunt you for the rest of your life.
Q:Should I hire an attorney if I intend to plea guilty?
A:Yes. Even if you are going to plead guilty, a good criminal defense attorney can help negotiate for a lesser charge or less harsh punishment on your behalf; something you may not be able to do yourself.
Q:I’ve been accused of a crime I didn’t commit. Can you help?
A:Yes. Many clients we work with have been wrongfully accused or charged with a greater crime than justified. We will work hard to gather the evidence necessary to prove your innocence and help you get back to living life.
Q:I’m having trouble getting a job after being convicted. How can you help?
A:Depending on the circumstances of your case, we may be able to get your probation lifted early and your record sealed or expunged.
Q:Can you guarantee a good outcome for my case?
A:Unfortunately, no. It would be unethical for us, or anyone else, to promise your case will end one way or the other. But we promise to always be honest with you, good or bad. Also, we pledge to thoroughly investigate your case and give you the personal attention you deserve to fight on your behalf.
