Criminal Law comes into play when a crime has allegedly taken place. You should NEVER agree to speak with a law enforcement officer about any alleged crime unless you are accompanied by a criminal attorney; it is essential that you have qualified legal representation from the very beginning. If you are charged with or even suspected of a crime, your very freedom is at stake, even if you act in self-defense.
Do not attempt to represent yourself, even during questioning, because one mistake on your part may result in imprisonment, substantial fines or other penalties, a criminal record and a lifetime of consequences for you and your family. Whether misdemeanor or felony charges are levied, our firm can advocate for you every step of the way, from arraignment to trial.
We take pride in working with each client to develop an individualized approach in order to obtain the best possible result. When you hire Cotton Law Firm to represent you, we take the time to get to know you and your unique set of needs, to explain your options, address your questions and concerns and to develop the best strategy for you.
