When facing criminal charges, the possibility of a criminal record, prison, jail, large fines and/or probation are all frightening prospects. Choosing the right lawyer is among the most important decisions you will make. You need to be confident that your attorney will faithfully act in your best interests and provide you with all of the information you need in order to make educated decisions.
