Informed Decision-Making for

frequently asked questions

  • What is the role of a criminal defense attorney?
    Your lawyer’s responsibility is to capitalize on every possible advantage, option, and opportunity to achieve a favorable outcome for you. This endeavor involves exploiting weaknesses in the government’s case, identifying and presenting defenses, and evaluating alternative strategies to resolve the charges.
  • What areas of criminal defense do you cover?
    Our firm is dedicated to defending clients accused of a broad range of offenses, including DUI, traffic violations, sex crimes, weapons infractions, drug charges, and white-collar crimes. We are also equipped to handle charges related to violent crimes, such as aggravated assault, murder, and manslaughter.
  • How does sentencing work if I am found guilty?
    Misdemeanors carry less severe penalties, but a judge may still impose a jail term of up to one year. Felonies are more serious offenses and can potentially result in several years of imprisonment or even life behind bars.
  • Do judges consider other factors?
    Judges utilize sentencing guidelines to determine penalties, meaning your sentence could be influenced by aggravating factors and prior criminal history. The court also takes into account the nature of the offense, such as drug crimes, offenses against individuals, and property crimes.
  • How will a conviction impact my future?
    In addition to the sentence imposed by a judge, there are collateral consequences that could have an impact on your life. You may lose your driver’s license and any professional or business licenses you hold. Furthermore, a conviction will appear on employment background checks.
  • What factors should I consider when hiring a defense lawyer?
    Experience and specialization are crucial, so make sure to confirm that the majority of clients they represent are in the field of criminal defense. You should also inquire about their courtroom activities and track record of success in trials.
