Prison sentences are getting longer and more frequent. If you are under investigation or are facing arrest, it is best to contact an aggressive criminal defense attorney as early in the process as possible in order to protect your legal and constitutional rights.
In fact, your individual rights permeate the criminal justice system and affect not only how an investigation is conducted but also how you are treated if detained and arrested, as well as your access to justice and a fair trial. An experience criminal defense attorney can explain these rights to you and will help protect and fight for them every step of the way.
We understand when a police officer or prosecutor has stepped over the line and violated your rights. Our skilled criminal defense attorneys are trained to recognize police errors and missteps and will point out misconduct to get your charges reduced or dismissed.
