Being charged with a crime is not an uncommon experience for most people. Thousands of Americans are convicted of crimes every year. Some go to jail, others are given alternative dispositions, but all have one thing in common… a mark on their record.

Many more are arrested but found not guilty or have their cases dismissed. The difference for these people often times is the quality of legal representation they employed early in their case.
