We Have Seen It All And Can Help

by | Oct 10, 2018 | Criminal Defense

It’s Sunday morning. You just woke up to a piercing headache, a mysterious stain on your favorite shirt, and wait, what’s that paper in your pocket? You pull out a crumpled up rectangular sheet of blue paper.  The words “ordered to appear” and “prohibited acts” jump off the paper. Your heart begins to race as it all comes rushing back to you. Take a deep breath. We have seen it all and we can help.

Don’t believe us? Check out some statements made by past clients:

“I was at Brick, and the next thing I know the nurse is handing me these tickets. Something about passing out on the sidewalk in front of my dorm.”

“We decided to take a selfie for the ‘gram- on the roof of the police station. To be honest, I’m still not sure how we even got up there…”

“You know it was honestly fate. All of my friends already had an underage, so I guess it was just my turn.”

“Want to know the worst part? I turn 21 in a week. Really thought they’d just let me buy the beer.”

“I just thought –  look at me and look at the officer – I’ll make a run for it. Safe to say I didn’t make it very far…”

“Now that I think about it- it was way too early to not realize that I was carrying a Whiteclaw Uptown with me. Probably shouldn’t shotgun those things.”

“My brother said I was trying to play tackle football with the RA? But I guess she just didn’t understand the game…”

“We all thought it’d be sick to take a stop sign back to our place. But, uh, we quickly realized that they don’t uproot very easily…”

“We just had to go real bad. But right as we turned around, boom, bright light and the officer just says: ‘zip it up and hand me your IDs.'”

We take cases seriously. We are sharing this post so that students and future clients know that they are not alone. We see these cases on a daily basis and we know that a criminal charge can be lifelong and devastating. 

The good news? We have a proven record of success advocating for the dismissal and expungement of our clients’ cases. In fact, many of our clients advance to prestigious graduate schools and enter the business, legal, and medical fields without a record. If you find yourself in a situation similar to those above, take a deep breath and give us a call. Whatever may have happened, we won’t be surprised. We have seen it all and we are here to advocate for you.
