Many people we represent have never had any contact with the criminal justice system. Their expectations are based on what they've read, or more likely seen on television. As you might guess, that's not usually what happens in real life.

We have put together this video series to explain what happens in typical criminal case - from the time you hire a lawyer to represent you until your case is closed. We will also address some of the most common questions people have, such as plea bargaining.

Check back from time to time, because we will continue to add to the series. 

DISCLAIMER: You probably already know this, but I need to say it anyway. This information cannot take the place of advice from a lawyer who knows all the facts and understands your situation. Nothing in these videos is meant to create an attorney-client relationship. If you've been arrested, you need to find a competent and experienced criminal defense attorney to represent you.
