Protect Your Future

If you have been charged with a felony, contact a reputable attorney who works exclusively in criminal defense.  Do not talk with the police without first contacting an attorney; it is your right to consult with an attorney before that takes place.

You will not be successful in convincing the police officer that you are a good person; you will only be contributing to your own prosecution and conviction.
