Consequences of a Criminal Conviction
Incarceration is not the only consequence of a criminal conviction. Judges have many tools at their disposal to help determine an appropriate sanction for criminal behavior.
Fines, probation, community service, counseling, educational requirements, vocational training, house arrest, or even wearing a GPS device are some of the alternatives to incarceration that a judge can consider. A strong advocate can work to persuade a judge to impose the least restrictive penalty for a conviction instead of imprisonment.
There are other consequences of a conviction as well. A criminal record can severely hinder your ability to get a better job, further your education, obtain a professional license, live where you want, and apply for financial assistance. You could also face negative immigration consequences if you are not a citizen of the United States.
How Can You Avoid the Consequences of a Criminal Conviction?
Our lawyers are well-known in the legal community as tough but fair. Our attorneys foster strong working relationships with prosecutors. Why? Because healthy professional relationships built on trust permit easier negotiations which could lead to better results for you.
However, we are also fierce advocates who are never afraid to take a case to trial if the prosecutor refuses to be reasonable. As former prosecutors, we learned how to fight for justice. We’ve taken those lessons and are now fighting to preserve the rights of people like you.
