Facing criminal charges is a challenging event in a person's life. You must ensure that you are taking care of the case right away because it isn't going to go away if you ignore it. We know that this is a challenge, especially when you are going through it for the first time. Fortunately, we are here to help you work through the matters at hand.
Facing a criminal matter means that you have to think about all the options that you have. You must carefully consider diversion programs, such as drug court for drug charges, and plea deals. You need to also look at the consequences that you are facing if you go through a criminal trial. We can help you to look into these so that you are able to decide what you feel is best for your needs.
The circumstances of your case determine what might be possible. You can't base your decisions over what might have worked or didn't work for someone else. We have to look at the specifics of your situation so that we can help you try to figure out how various options might impact you.
As you are reviewing what might happen in your case, look at how they might affect you right now but don't discount the long-term impacts. For example, pleading guilty to a felony charge as part of a plea deal might give you a way out of a prison sentence but it also means you will be branded a felon for the rest of your life. This comes with significant collateral consequences, including being unable to own a firearm. We are here to help you attempt to reduce the impacts that you will have to face.
