Criminal Defense Tips: "It Only Takes One"

Nov 30, 2016

Looking for a useful criminal defense tip? Remember this: it only takes one.
One false accusation. One bad decision. One traffic stop. One misunderstanding. Just one time of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
It only takes one.
When that one time happens, your life can be turned upside down for the foreseeable future. Instead of the daily grind of going to work and coming home to your family you will face criminal charges, financial penalties, and the prospect of living the rest of your life with a criminal record - our society's "scarlet letter".
It only takes one criminal charge to leave you facing immense damage to your personal reputation, professional career, and standing in the community. This includes charges related to:
  • Drug crimes
  • Driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs
  • Sex crimes
  • Violent crimes, including assault or domestic violence
Once you are or arrested or find out that you are under investigation for a criminal act you have one decision you need to make: go it alone or put an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side?
You are not required to have legal representation as your face criminal charges but it is a smart idea to do so. You have no way of knowing what you don't know at this crucial time in your life.
An attorney who has been through this before will know exactly how to attack the charges against you and make sure the burden of proof on the prosecution remains a heavy one.
How can you make sure you have the representation you need to protect your rights? It only takes one action: contact us for your initial consultation.
