Probation may be an option after conviction

When people get in trouble with the law, the one consequence that may concern them most is going to jail. Jail time means being away from your loved ones, time in which you cannot work to earn money or further your career, and separation from everything that is familiar to you. This is why many who are convicted of crimes hope the court will sentence them to probation instead.

What are some good reasons to work with a defense attorney?

You know that the fact that you're facing a criminal charge is serious, so you've looked into working with an attorney. You also know that you have the potential to represent yourself, which costs less and, you believe, is a possible option.

What causes sideswipe accidents?

One common kind of traffic accident is called a sideswipe accident. With a sideswipe accident, one vehicle hits the other with its side. For example, two vehicles may be traveling next to each other on the highway. As a driver attempts to move over a lane, they may not notice that a driver is already there. As a result, both vehicles hit their sides together, resulting in a sideswipe accident.

What do you do if you accidentally shoplifted and were caught?

You didn't intend to be where you are now, facing criminal charges for a crime you didn't even plan on committing. The store you went into has a strict policy for pursing shoplifters, but you didn't mean to shoplift. You were carrying around items you want to try on, and you had tried on some. You picked up those items to put them back and forgot about one that was slung over your bag. Now, you're facing charges and are frustrated with the entire situation.
