Being charged with any crime is a frightening experience. This is especially true for a person who has never had contact with the criminal justice system. Suddenly, you find yourself thrust into a world you never imagined you would be a part of. You are subjected to indignities you never thought you would experience. The stress of being the subject of an investigation or the trauma of being arrested and booked into a jail can truly be overwhelming. It will make you question your most basic assumptions about what kind of person you are.
The first three things that go through your mind:
1) How will this affect my job?
2) How will this affect my family?
3) How will this impact the opinion everyone has of me?
A criminal conviction can also impact your ability to rent a home or live in certain communities. If you are not a citizen, a criminal conviction can even get you deported. Fortunately, there’s a chance that your life can go back to normal. But timing is critical. You need to know your rights under the law and act to protect them immediately.
Timely intervention, negotiation, and preparation by an experienced criminal defense attorney is your best option and our lawyers will guide you through this emotional and legal maze with two goals in mind:
1) avoiding jail if at all possible, and,
2) avoiding a criminal conviction.
Every case is different and Attorney Eric Blank strives to minimize the effects of a criminal case on your life.
