Criminal Defense

Qualified, Experienced Jackson, Lakewood and Chautauqua Criminal Defense Attorneys

Decorative Scales of Justice in the CourtroomBeing arrested or under investigation for a criminal offense, whether for a misdemeanor or felony, is stressful. Being charged with the offense and facing trial is life-changing. You have to spend time and money defending yourself. Your reputation may be damaged and you may lose your job. If you are a divorced or divorcing parent, your custody and visitation may be in danger.

Depending on the seriousness of the offense, if you are convicted, you may be facing hefty fines in addition to years of incarceration. You may lose a professional license and some jobs may never again be available to you. With so much at stake, do not talk to anyone, not to law enforcement or to a jail cell roommate. Only talk to an experienced, knowledgeable criminal defense attorney who will protect your rights and investigate your case.
