A criminal defence lawyer who understands
What you should understand is that the Administration of Justice benefits when you just plead guilty. Guilty pleas are expedient; they legitimize police action and usually result in the acquisition of a criminal record. A criminal record may dog you for the rest of your life. The police will treat you differently than those who do not have a criminal record. Indeed, an ordinary traffic stop interaction with a well-intended police officer may turn into an elongated probing of your personal affairs.
With a criminal record, you may lose employment opportunities or the ability to travel to foreign countries. It is not unusual for United States Border Services to decline entry for persons charged with certain kinds of criminal offences.
To help you gain some immediate understanding about your case, I offer a free initial telephone consultation. In this consultation, I will do my best to supply you with a basic understanding of your case and some insight as to whether your charge(s) might be successfully defended. Of course, any preliminary opinion is without the benefit of disclosure (which can alter the complexion of any opinion) , but a preliminary assessment might help ease your mind in difficult times.
