Criminal Defence

The implications of a criminal charge or conviction can include travel restrictions, loss of employment, a criminal record, no-contact orders with friends or family members, loss of a driver’s license, and of course the risk of incarceration or restrictive probation conditions. The severity of the repercussions necessitates retaining skilled and experienced legal counsel to assist in your defence.
