Putting up an unyielding defense against criminal charges

If you’ve been charged with a crime, you want somebody who will give you straight answers - not false hope. Reassurance, not a runaround. Most of all, you want someone who will fight to protect your rights against charges ranging from speeding tickets, to marijuana possession, to violent crimes that permanently impact your life and future. This is what you can expect from STACLAW.

A criminal conviction is serious

A criminal conviction could reverberate through your life long after you've paid the penalty or completed the sentence. Your employment prospects, financial health, housing situation, access to government benefits and even your right to vote may be impacted for years to come. A criminal charge can't be taken lightly, but neither should you feel helpless.

Having a competent attorney is critical

A variety of factors enter into each part of enforcing criminal law, and you have options you might not be aware of that could influence your case. For example, you might be able negotiate a plea bargain, produce witnesses to bolster your defense, or apply for a sentencing program that reduces time in prison.

However, the consequences of a criminal charge are potentially compounded when you're not familiar with the legal system. It takes legal expertise to navigate the complexities of the law, protect your right to due process, and advocate vigorously for the best possible outcome for your situation. A diligent lawyer is an invaluable source of support when you're experiencing the tremendous stress that comes with facing criminal charges.
