Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to hire an attorney if I plan on pleading guilty?
Regardless of what you plan on pleading, it is important you hire a criminal defense lawyer to protect your rights. An attorney from our firm can help you obtain a lighter sentence, or minimize/completely eliminate your criminal charges, if possible.
Is there a difference between probation and parole?
Yes. Probation is an alternative to prison, while parole is a shortened amount of time spent in prison.
What is the difference between a dismissal and an expungement?
- A dismissal can occur when a prosecutor drops your case. This can happen after the assistant district attorney reviews your case and decides the evidence against you is not strong enough or your case is not worth prosecution.
- An expungement is when your case is erased. Expungements are difficult to obtain, so if you wish to learn if an expungement is available for your past criminal conviction, you will need to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney.
