A good storyteller can change the outcome of a case

If you are facing charges for a crime that you committed, your attorney's job is to help keep you out of jail or to reduce the number of penalties you face. Depending on the specific facts of your case, you may be at risk of minimum penalties and federal charges.

Female officer claims retaliation and false allegations

It is not always easy to handle a situation in which you're accused of a crime. If you didn't commit it, then you're facing allegations that aren't fair and that you shouldn't need to defend yourself against. Unfortunately, that does happen and is something you'll have to handle as quickly and professionally as possible.

Man arrested after taking ride-sharing service to his car drunk

If you're caught drinking and heading to your vehicle, a kind officer might tell you to take an Uber or Lyft, to grab a taxi or to call someone for a ride. It would be in your best interests to follow those recommendations instead of getting behind the wheel, because once you do, you can be arrested for drunk driving.
