We know that many of our potential clients go to the internet for information. Information however is not knowledge. There is a real danger that in obtaining this information you will lose site of the fact that, without legal training and the experience of practicing in this area of law, you will fail to understand all the possible legal and factual defenses that can be positioned on your behalf. At the same time you also may be unable to distinguish good information from bad. This is why it is always best to speak with a criminal defense lawyer to fully understand and evaluate your case.
I do not delegate tasks to an army of associates. I personally handle your complete defense. A major distinction between our firm and other lawyers is that we take a case with the understanding that if it’s not dismissed we are going to trial.More Info
