Under the Sixth Amendment of the United States Constitution, every individual has the right to retain adequate legal representation in the event of a criminal charge. If you are unable to afford an attorney, the court will appoint a public defender. This form of counsel, however, is not always your best option, as public defenders are often overworked attorneys with excessive caseloads who are not always personally invested in your case. For this reason, our firm offers affordable legal counsel, without sacrificing quality. We also offer free initial consultations, so there is no financial risk in contacting us regarding your case.
