Facing criminal charges is scary enough as it is; but facing charges with the representation of an inexperienced, incapable defense attorney is far worse. If you have been charged with any type of crime, take immediate action to hire a lawyer with the skill and aggression needed to obtain the outcome you need. Otherwise, you may end up facing harsher penalties than you deserve. Misdemeanors are punishable by high fines and a possible jail sentence, while felonies are punishable by 1-30 years in prison-or a life sentence, in extreme cases.
