WHAT IS A CRIMINAL CASE?
Please, PLEASE understand, whether you retain our firm or NOT, get a qualified attorney who has practiced criminal law. Anytime you enter the legal system you should have an attorney, anytime. This can be even more important in a criminal case because what you say or do may place you in a situation that will make a conviction or plea even more likely. Speak to an attorney and no one else. Remember even good people find themselves on the wrong side of the law at times.
WHY HIRE TONY?
Tony has vast experience in handling criminal cases. He has worked in the Indigent Defender’s program, which not only gave Tony a chance to give back, but also receive valuable knowledge and understanding. This included, litigation experience in both jury and non-jury matters. Tony worked in the IDO office for 13 years, and now only handles cases for private clients.
Tony is aggressive, but not foolish enough to cause prosecutors to be unwilling to work with him through cases. The criminal process can be a down right scary one. Tony takes time with his clients to discuss the process and keep them in the loop for their comfort and to help the matter move.
