Criminal proceedings are extremely complex.  We are able to provide the best service and representation for clients who contact us early on in their case; ideally, as soon as they learn they are being investigated for a crime, or at least as soon as they are arrested or charged.  Some of our best work has been performed for clients who contacted us prior to being charged with a crime; we have been instrumental in advocating for reduced charges or no charges at all.
