Your attorney will work toward achieving the best possible outcome for you in your case. Factors exist in a significant number of cases that support a dismissal or reduction of the charge or a favorable plea bargain. In other cases, it is more appropriate to proceed with a trial on the merits. It is important that you meet promptly with an experienced attorney to discuss your specific circumstances that will ultimately determine the course most appropriate to take in order to achieve the best possible result.

If you have been charged in a criminal or traffic matter it is important to remain calm and refrain from making any rash decision to plead guilty or no contest. Instead, we invite you to contact our criminal defense attorneys to answer your questions regarding what to expect, what positive steps you can make in advance of your hearing date, and how we can best prepare for court.
