Criminal charges can impact your life in a variety of ways. The criminal justice system in the United States is based on the premise that defendants are innocent until they are found guilty in court; however, this isn’t always the way that society will view the matter. For some defendants, having to deal with the social repercussions of these charges becomes overwhelming. People, even some that are close to the person, might begin to think the defendant is guilty.
We know that there are many ways that this can affect you right now. Your family members might turn their back on you. Your friends might leave. You might lose your job. You may lose your home. All of these might occur before you are ever convicted, but they can become more likely if you are convicted.
In every criminal matter, there are defense options for the defendant to consider. We want to help you determine what options are possible in your case so that you can attempt to minimize the impacts that you will face. We are here to work with you to determine what defense strategy you want to utilize.
It is imperative that we get to work on your case as soon as possible. When you wait until close to a hearing date, we might be forced to rush through the points that might apply to your case. It is always better to get started early so that we have time to fully vet out each option, so we can help you develop a strategy that addresses the prosecutor’s claims.
