CRIMINAL & TRAFFIC
Most criminal matters will be governed by the formal charges stated against you. This will not only determine what the prosecutor must prove, but also designate the jurisdiction and local procedural rules, and provide the range of possible sentencing. Sentencing can consist of combination of fees and fines, supervision, conditional discharge, probation, or jail or prison time. When dealing with a criminal issue, you must consider not only the possible outcome of your trial, but also auxiliary matters such as possible immigration problems, suspended drivers license, prior criminal history, violation of previous court orders, expungement possibilities, and even employment and education matters.
Although you have the basic rights such as: to demand a jury trial, to confront witnesses, to have an attorney, and to produce evidence, each case must be carefully analyzed based on the factual occurrence prior to determining whether we will assist our client in plea bargain negotiations, or take the matter to jury or a bench trial. We assist our client with matters involving:
- Felonies, Misdemeanor DUI, Reckless Driving
- Driving Without a License
- Driving on a Suspended License
- Shoplifting – aka Retail Theft, Drug Charges – aka Possession of Control Substance (PCS)
- Battery, Assault, Property Crimes, Expungement
- Drivers License Issues, Secretary of State Hearings
- Hit & Run, Fraud Charges, Perjury
Criminal law requires immediate action and careful review of the possible consequences. Admissions made by the defendant can be devastating to legal defense. Unless otherwise instructed, do not talk to anyone about your case.
