I've been arrested for a simple charge. Do I still need legal counsel?
Regardless of the severity, every charge should be treated as a serious matter. Even the simplest of charges can have a negative impact on your life. From driver's license suspension to lost opportunities, even petty crimes can alter your everyday life. It is important to retain a lawyer, if only to keep you informed of your rights and options throughout the process.

What are the penalties if I am convicted?
This is a difficult question to answer without understanding the full details of your case. Penalties often depend on the severity and type of charge. The more serious the crime, the more detrimental the penalties. A conviction can result in time in jail or prison, loss of driver's or professional license, probation, fines, and more.

If I am under investigation, should I speak with law enforcement?
You have to be careful and protect your rights when dealing with law enforcement officers. Remember your rights: You have the right to remain silent. This is crucial as you may incriminate yourself by simply answering a question. If you are under investigation or stopped by law enforcement, politely request to have an attorney present before answering any questions.

I sustained an injury in an accident. What do I do now?
As serious advocates for injury victims, we firmly believe that you deserve to seek compensation. If you were injured as a result of a negligent party, call our firm as soon as possible. The sooner you seek legal action, the quicker you can file a claim against the responsible party's insurance provider.

What are common causes for personal injury claims?
We often represent victims of auto accidents, dog bites, premises liability accidents, and more.
