For instance, if the arresting police officer violated your Constitutional rights (most specifically your 4th Amendment rights), then there could be a chance to get the charges dismissed. In the alternative, we had tremendous success getting a favorable outcome by working out a deal with the local prosecutor (in which he/she reduces the current charge down to something minor that will not show up on your record).Pleading Guilty Is Not Your Best Option!!
The unfortunate fact, however, is that most people never seek out the aid of an attorney. Sometimes this decision is based purely on economic affordability (which is exactly why we keep our fees as low as possible). But more often than not it is because people do not seem to believe that a misdemeanor is any big deal at all (like it’s the functional equivalent of a simple traffic ticket).
This is a complete misunderstanding of how the law works. For instance, if you were to plead guilty to the misdemeanor, it will become a part of your permanent record. This can have a tremendous impact on your future, since most entities that you’ll deal with down the road run criminal background checks. So if you were to apply for a job, rent an apartment, take out a business loan, or ask for student financial assistance, those organizations will see the conviction and very likely screen you out as a candidate.
But it does not have to turn out this way!! We have a much better plan in mind! And all you need to do is give us a call!
