If you have been charged with a criminal offense, whether it is alleged to be a misdemeanor or felony, you have likely learned the consequences of just being charged are serious. You may lose your family and friends. You may lose your job and have trouble finding another one. If you are in the process of a divorce or already divorced, you may have problems with custody and visitation of your children.
If you are convicted, you will learn that a conviction is life-changing. You may spend time in prison and be required to pay a hefty fine and restitution. For the rest of your life, you will be known as a convicted felon. If you are not a U.S. citizen, you may be deported.
You need to contact a criminal law attorney as soon as you know you are under investigation or have been arrested. You need someone on your side willing to fight for you in order to maintain your freedom.
You need your constitutional rights protected
No matter what the charges are against you, you have constitutional rights that need to be protected. To just name a few, you have the right to remain silent, to be free from warrantless searches, to confront the witnesses against you and to due process. Due process means all proceedings need to be fairly conducted.
