Fighting Criminal Charges

The repercussions of a criminal conviction can go beyond fines and jail time. Even relatively minor charges like DUI or marijuana possession can be career-ending. A conviction will lead to a criminal record that can be seen by anyone, including your current employer and potential employers in the future. Commercial drivers, military personnel and licensed professionals need to take particular care when charged with a crime. A conviction can also jeopardize an education, making it important for high school and college students to fight charges.
