Criminal Defense Lawyer Protecting Your Rights

A criminal conviction can impact your personal and professional reputation for years to come. With the stakes so high, you need the counsel of an experienced and aggressive criminal defense attorney to protect your rights.

Whether you are formally under arrest or merely in custody, police officers must advise you on your Miranda Rights. These refer to your right to:

  • Remain silent
  • Have an attorney
  • Have an attorney present during questioning

When facing criminal charges, more than just your freedom is on the line. While the thought of jail time or large fines may be your most pressing concerns, it’s important to realize that a criminal conviction can follow you for the rest of your life. Depending on the nature of the crime, a conviction can affect your:

  • Financial aid status
