Trouble At Home

Strife within the home isn't always considered a family affair. If your spouse contacts the police when you're having an argument, you could find yourself facing charges that even your spouse can't take back. Similarly, all it takes is a neighbor to call Child Protective Services (CPS) and you could be facing charges of child abuse or neglect. A conviction on either count could mean lifelong stigma and restricted rights and could even lead to your children being taken away from you. This is serious stuff that requires a committed and strategic lawyer.

It's important to speak to an attorney before you talk to the police about your criminal charge.
