If you are facing a criminal conviction, it can have consequences that go far beyond a fine and jail time. A criminal conviction can have hidden costs that may affect your current or future employment, your ability to obtain a professional license, and other areas of your life. If you are an immigrant, it can lead to your deportation. Before you accept a plea deal for any criminal charge, it pays to discuss your case with an experienced criminal defense lawyer. To avoid making incriminating statements, it’s important not to say anything to police before you have talked to a lawyer.

In addition to winning 12 federal cases in a row, Firm founder Jacque Hawk has obtained a dismissal of charges in a case that would have resulted in life in prison for his client.
