Talk with a Rocky River Criminal Lawyer About the Penalties You Face

Most people do not realize how serious a criminal charge is-and many criminal attorneys do their clients the disservice of simply having them enter quick “no contest” pleas rather than testing the evidence. Our attorneys will go over, in great detail, the nature of the charges you face and properly advise you of all the consequences you could suffer as a result of a guilty finding or a no contest plea. Prior to entering any plea we will test the evidence and put appropriate pressure on the prosecutor and the police to make sure that you are being treated fairly. In many cases, such as DUI / OVI cases, the evidence was improperly handled from the very beginning. In cases where the police and prosecutor are unable to prove their case it is unwise to enter a plea until the police and city make a legitimate offer. And as your criminal lawyer, we’d never allow that to happen.

Our Criminal Lawyers Understand What You’re Going Through

Chances are that this is the first time you have been charged with a crime, but there is no reason you have to go through it alone. A true criminal lawyer understands the consequences that you face; beyond the possible jail time to the potential for job loss, the loss of standing in the community, embarrassment, and everything else that goes along with being charged with a crime. We go through this all the time with our clients and our clients are generally very satisfied with our work; we stand by our reputation as a first-rate criminal attorney.
