Felony Offense Conviction 

A conviction for a felony offense, besides possible incarceration, will result in the loss of one’s right to possess a firearm, to vote, and to hold public office.  It may also cause the loss of employment opportunities, and a  restriction on places you can travel to.

It is advisable to retain/hire an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as you are arrested or learn that you are under investigation.

A court appointed attorney or Public Defender is an attorney which is paid by the State or Government and appointed by the Court. Although initially free of charge you may later be held liable for the reasonable value of the Public Defender’s services.
