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
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.

accidents, and more.
