Defending Your Rights. Protecting Your Future.

The criminal justice system can be intimidating and confusing — all the more so when you're facing potential prison time. The law itself has countless nuances that can have a big effect on your case.

Don't Make These Mistakes — They Could Cost You Big-Time

When you're facing criminal charges, no matter how serious, it's important to know your rights. The biggest two are your right to remain silent and your right to have a lawyer. Don't make the mistake of talking to the police at any point during the proceedings, even if charges haven't yet been filed. They're trained to zero in on your vulnerabilities, put you at a disadvantage and use that against you later. Always talk to a lawyer first.

Likewise, don't talk about your case with friends or family, as they might later get called as witnesses against you. And certainly don't share anything on Facebook or social media — it could come back to haunt you.
