Facing allegations of criminal conduct can be a frightening and stressful issue. Criminal charges can affect you for the rest of your life, such as where you can work or find housing. There is simply no reason to face criminal legal issues alone. Not all criminal convictions necessarily end in jail time, nor are they guaranteed to stay on your record indefinitely. An experienced attorney can help you avoid unnecessary risk, challenge the charges against you, and help get your life back on track.

Private attorneys have some clear advantages over court-appointed counsel. A private attorney works directly for you and should be more accessible to your needs. Choosing a private attorney allows a more personal involvement in the handling of your case. Finally, a private attorney chooses criminal law because it is something they are passionate about; they choose their clients based on the perceived ability to assist them to the best of their ability within the law. This can help ensure that your attorney is a zealous advocate for your best interests.
