Assistance With The Collateral Consequences Of Criminal Convictions
Being charged with a criminal offense often creates consequences beyond appearing in court and facing the sanctions provided for by the criminal law. Many people don’t realize that there are often other life-altering consequences in addition to the sentence that may be imposed by a judge. You may be justifiably concerned about your job and career, driver’s license, student status, immigration status, insurance costs and other important matters.
For comprehensive protection of your rights, it is important to retain a lawyer who is not only familiar with the criminal courtroom, but also has experience dealing with and maneuvering through the various administrative agencies and licensing boards that may also be involved.
