You may be tempted to agree to a plea offer from the prosecution before consulting an attorney, simply to resolve a stressful situation and put it behind you. But be warned that this quick decision may come back to haunt you when you find yourself faced with mandatory jail time, lengthy probation or parole, expensive and time-consuming classes or therapy, and a criminal record that may follow you for the rest of your life. Resist the temptation to act quickly!
Prosecutors will often extend an offer that seems reasonable on the surface but will later subject you to a myriad of unforeseen consequences. Take the time to talk to an attorney, understand your rights and the consequences facing you, and only then make an informed decision on how to move forward.
As a skilled attorney with years of experience in the criminal justice system I can negotiate a plea agreement favorable to you. Careful investigation, a good working relationship with prosecutors, and skilled negotiation from a position of knowledge and strength can help keep you out of jail and minimize the consequences that you will face.
If we are unable to reach a plea agreement to your satisfaction, then my firm will bring sharp courtroom skills to defend your Constitutional rights at trial and fight for the best possible resolution to your case.
Knowing what to expect, being made aware of your options, and developing a proactive plan with the right attorney will help to get your life back on track.
