When someone is charged with a crime, the natural immediate concern is whether s/he is facing jail time. The truth is that a criminal conviction, even if it is what seems like a minor offense, has consequences beyond the courtroom. Even if you are not facing jail time, you may be subject to probation and fines and a criminal record can prevent you from getting a job, student loans, or even renting an apartment. If you are charged with a crime, even what seems like a minor one, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney protecting you right away.
Before opening my own law practice, I was a public defender for 12 years. While in this position, I defended clients accused of a variety of very serious offenses and learned to protect them against judges and prosecutors who were looking to punish them as harshly as possible. Throughout my career I have regularly represent people accused of various offense, including:
- Drug Offenses;
- Domestic violence;
- Sexual assault;
- Weapons offenses;
- OUI/Driving offenses; and
- Child abuse.
I am committed to working closely with my clients and keeping them fully informed at all times. When you come in for an initial consultation, I will fully review the details of your case and give you my honest opinion on how to proceed. I will thoroughly explain the possible outcomes to you and advise you accordingly
