The Best Defense: Full Court Press
If you are indeed not guilty of a sex offense, you may still find yourself caught up in a system that assumes you are guilty. Avoiding the pitfall of presumed guilt is critical to a successful outcome. We specialize in taking control of every aspect of your case, coping with potential judicial bias, prosecutorial myopia and unwanted media attention. False allegations are too often grounded in dysfunctional family situations or failed relationships. We are neither timid nor tentative. We will assess your case quickly and completely and let you know precisely where you stand.
Our lawyers provide a vigorous, aggressive defense against the full spectrum of state and federal sex crimes, including:
• Internet crimes
• Child pornography
• Sexual assault
• Child molestation
When You Need Experienced Counsel, and Right Now
If you find yourself facing an allegation of sexual impropriety, you’ll need immediate advice and counsel. Your accuser may have misidentified you, misunderstood you or misrepresented a set of facts about you to an investigating agency. What you won’t be able to do is straighten out any misunderstanding on your own. Talking to police or press is invariably a mistake, even when facing the time-honored canard, “But why would you need a lawyer if you didn’t do anything wrong?”
Every sex crime allegation, from child pornography to molestation to physical assault, requires prompt attention to the details of a defense . The sooner you contact a lawyer, the sooner you can start working to clear yourself. Contact us to start that process.
