Criminal Defense

There’s No Such Thing As A ‘Minor Criminal Charge’


The term “minor criminal offense” is used often in law enforcement, but the truth is, if you face criminal charges, it’s no small matter. Whether you have been charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, any criminal conviction can have a serious and lasting negative impact on your life. It is no time to take unnecessary risks by enlisting the services of an inexperienced lawyer.
