The impact of even an allegation can be enough to destroy a personal and professional reputation it took you a lifetime to build. You need an attorney who understands the impact this process is having on your life, who can talk you through the process, humanize you to the system, and fight hard for the result that is fair and just.
Being charged with a crime is one of the most traumatic events a person can experience. Once it happens, your entire life takes a back seat to the legal system as you are reduced to an arrest report by the police, a charging document by the prosecutor, and a case number by the judges.
