Contact Our Team

You need to know what you are up against. Ideally, you should contact us when you first believe you are in trouble. We start working on your matter immediately, and in some cases, are able to avoid having criminal charges ever filed against you. However, even if you have already contacted another attorney who has reviewed your cases and told you to plead guilty, it’s not too late. We have successfully won cases other attorneys said were impossible.
