How can a lawyer help me?
If you are charged with a crime, you have rights! An experienced attorney can safeguard your rights and ensure that you are treated fairly.
Your case will be investigated by police and prosecuted by a trained District Attorney. A trained, experienced attorney will protect your rights and hold the prosecutor to his burden of proof.
Prosecutors and police sometimes rush to judgment or overcharge cases, causing the accused to make a plea deal because of the threat of jail or prison. A criminal conviction may have serious consequences that can change a person’s life, including time in jail or prison, probation supervision, fines and fees, and more. An experienced attorney will advise you of the potential consequences in your case and possible defenses that you may have to each charge. We work with own experienced private investigators to uncover evidence the police missed and tell your side of the story. We can also seek alternatives to jail and prison, working with probation and the courts to investigate drug or alcohol treatment programs, mental health treatment or other positive solutions for clients.
At the POPKES LAW OFFICE we have the experience and expertise you need on your side, at a cost you can afford.
