If you are charged with a crime, choosing the right criminal defense attorney can make the difference between winning and losing the battle.
Many people find themselves facing criminal charges with no idea of where to turn, or what to do. Most are good people who find themselves in trouble with the law. Some are innocent of the charges and need assistance fighting the wrongful accusations. Others need someone to stand by their side and protect their rights as they face the charges. All of them need to talk to an attorney to understand what they face.
Whether you need an attorney to defend your innocence, protect your rights, or simply to help you understand the challenges you face, we are here for you.

This is why you need a well qualified attorney. As you can see in this case, even when an attorney doesn't win an argument at court, there is a reason to make the argument, and that's for appeal purposes.
