If you have been accused of a crime you need to take the charges seriously. The failure to work to build a strong defense could lead to a conviction and life-changing penalties. With offices in Orange and Beaumont, Townsend P.C. Attorneys At Law understands the serious impact a criminal conviction could have on your future.
Protect Your Future
The first thing that comes to mind for many people when they think about being convicted of a crime is jail or prison. While that is a potential outcome for some convictions, the "less serious" penalties should not be overlooked. Depending on the charges you could also face hefty fines, which could have a negative impact on your finances or the loss of a driver's license, making it difficult to get around. In addition, some convictions could affect your ability to get a job, secure education loans or even find a place to live.
Don't Let Criminal Charges Ruin Your Life
The best way to approach the criminal charge you face will depend upon the charge and the circumstances surrounding your arrest. While in some cases it may make sense to take a case to trial, in other situations—particularly drunk driving or drug crimes— if alternative sentencing is available, a plea could be a better option.
Your Future Is Too Important To Risk
The sooner you contact a criminal defense lawyer for help the better. Doing so while you are under investigation could even lead to a reduction in the charges filed or even avoiding charges altogether.
