Aggressive Representation for Serious Allegations
Although you may be eager to defend your name, we caution against making any statement to investigators or prosecutors, or even to friends and family. Anything that you say can be turned around against you if you are formally charged with child molestation or any sex crime. Furthermore, your relatives and friends could be compelled to testify against you.

We will exhaust every defense and take every step to get charges dismissed or downgraded to minimize the impact on your life. We are prepared to fight for you at trial if you are facing the prospect of prison and lifetime sex-offender status.
