Maryland residents may think that since someone has been charged with a crime they are indeed guilty of committing it. However, this is not always the case, and it is this very perception that causes a permanent stain on the reputation of someone facing criminal charges. The truth of the matter is that everyone who is charged with a crime is entitled to defend themselves against the charges and clear their name to the best of their ability.
At our law firm we understand that anyone -- doctors, federal law enforcement officials, teachers, construction workers - anyone can face criminal charges. Charges alone have the potential to change the course of a person's life, as it can affect current and future career opportunities, personal and professional relationships and even the ability to purchase some items. Unfortunately, people do not realize that if they act quickly and aggressively, they may be able to fight the charges and clear their name.
At our law firm we take pride in helping criminal defendants. We are determined to protect our clients' rights. Facing charges, such as those for firearm possession discussed in last week's post, should not be taken lightly, as they carry mandatory minimum sentences that have the potential to wreak havoc over a person's life. At our law firm we are experienced in defending both adults and juveniles in gun possession charges and understand that even where they cannot get the charges dismissed, they may be able to avoid mandatory sentences and reduce incarceration periods.
It is important to face criminal charges head on and having an aggressive criminal defense is one of the strategies to achieve. Please visit our criminal defense page for more information.
