First Time Offenses and Misdemeanors

You could live another 1000 years, and you will never forget the way the cold steel handcuffs felt as they clamped down on your wrist bones. You will never forget the harsh tone the police officer took when he told you he didn't care about your explanation or what really happened. He was taking you to jail no matter what. That officer was not the only one who refused to listen to you. The officers at the jail did not want to hear what you had to say, the District Attorney did not want to hear what you had to say, and the judge imposed bond with apparent indifference. It is time for you to have your say. Our firm will ensure that you have your day in court.

White Collar Crime

You have to make tough business decisions all the time. You have to make decisions about compensation for yourself and for your employees. You have to make decisions about taxes and how federal and state tax laws apply to your business. You run your business in a competitive, cutthroat environment. One decision can make the difference between beating your competition Anna making a deal or losing and trying to figure out how you are going to meet your payroll the next month period Unfortunately, overzealous state and federal investigators sometimes mistake tough business decisions for criminal acts. When a business decision you've made catches the interest of a governmental agency, you need an exceptional legal team immediately. Our lawyers know how to handle white collar crime because our lawyers have been on both sides of it.
