No matter what type of legal matter you are facing, you have to make sure that you are protecting your rights and making decisions that you feel are in your best interests. A criminal justice case has to be taken very seriously because your freedom and ability to live in the manner you currently enjoy are at risk.
We realize that you might have some concerns about what options you have. These might be very limited in some cases but you should still explore the possibilities for your case. Looking into what you might be able to do early in the case gives you time to determine how each might impact you down the road.
As you are thinking about your defense, you need to think about your freedom, your career, your family and your finances. All of these can suffer negatively because of the criminal case against you. Instead of trying to vet out options based on the short-term impacts, take the time to look at what you might have to deal with years down the road.
One point about your defense that you need to remember is to always plan for the unexpected. Even if you are actively working on a plea deal, you need to remember that until it is finalized, there is a chance that you will face a trial. Being ready for this can help you as you work on plans to address each point that comes up in your case. We can work with you to ensure that you know your options and rights.
