Does Working with a Criminal Defense Attorney Make you Nervous? Let us Help Clear the Air:

Common objections we hear include:

  1. 1. I can’t afford a private defense attorney

    • You also cannot afford to let a criminal charge derail your life, your career, or your future. Come in for a free consultation to find out how we can help you — we’re confident that you’ll find the benefits of great legal counsel far outweigh the costs. Especially when it comes to a criminal case, skilled criminal defense attorneys can help spare you from certain legal fees, costs, and more. We can also talk about payment plan options. 
  2. 2. The evidence against me is really strong; I’m going to be convicted no matter what 

    • A strong case against you is not a slam dunk for the prosecution, and is all the more reason you should hire a private criminal defense attorney. Private attorneys will have more time and resources to devote to your case to better fight for the best possible outcome.
  3. 3. Criminal Attorneys aren’t trustworthy 

    • We know that some people feel this way. This is one of the many reasons we offer a free consultation. You get to come into our office, meet and talk with us, and learn how we can help you. After our first meeting, we know that you’ll experience our team as compassionate, dedicated, and trustworthy.
