When you are facing criminal charges, you need an attorney who is experienced to protect your rights. An adverse decision by a criminal court can negatively impact the rest of your life. You could end up with a criminal record, a large fine or sentence or other consequences that will follow you throughout your life. In addition, the stress and emotional burden of facing a criminal charge can be overwhelming.
