How Will a Criminal Arrest Affect Your Future?

One of the first questions we hear when sitting down with college students and others facing criminal charges is "How will this impact my future?" The short answer is, it depends on a variety of factors.

Although the circumstances of each case differ, one universal is that a stain on your criminal record can follow you for years. That is why it is important to secure representation, understand what you're up against, and aggressively defend your immediate and future interests with help from an attorney.
