RI CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER
RI LARCENY DEFENSE ATTORNEY
RI Larceny Defense Attorney
Here is the fact of the matter. The legal process was designed to include a defense attorney. Many people facing the court system initially believe they can navigate the system on their own. Other defendants believe the easiest route is to simply take a plea without mounting a defense. Unfortunately, the consequences of that plea deal may haunt you for years to come. Don't attempt to steer your larceny charge without a RI Larceny Defense Attorney to secure your interests.
You Deserve A Fair Chance
Whether you made a mistake or were charged unfairly, you deserve every opportunity afforded by our legal system. You deserve an RI Criminal Lawyer who is familiar with the rights and responsibilities of private security and police departments. I can make sure that everything about the arrest, detainment, and investigation was fair and according to the procedure. Because I live across the street from the court building, I am readily available for every stage of the process.
You also deserve an advocate who can properly evaluate the evidence. As a former prosecutor, I can give you a realistic appraisal of the potential case outcomes. Without my years of experience, it could be easy to overestimate the evidence against you. Don't let your fear of court, or distrust of the system, cost you freedom. You should have at least one person on your side.
