  • Sex crimes (rape, sex with minors, child porn)

We can't promise dismissal of charges or a not-guilty verdict at trial, but the consequences of nothaving proper legal representation with so much at stake could be disastrous.

In a perfect world, you should exercise your constitutional rights when confronted by police. Our job is to preserve your remaining rights after the fact and determine if police took liberties with the law in their conduct leading to your arrest and formal charges.
