An Experienced Criminal Defense Firm Fighting For Your Rights

A criminal arrest or investigation is a serious matter that requires a serious defense. You face not only possible jail time but also the lasting harm of a criminal record if you are convicted. Even if you already have some criminal history, you owe it to yourself to do all that you can to get the best outcome and prevent more trouble. A conviction for a repeat offense often brings a higher level of punishment than that of a first-time offense.

Regardless of your circumstances, we invite you to contact us at FrancePaskeySwope to discuss your criminal matter at your earliest opportunity. The sooner you have a skilled defense lawyer representing you, the more opportunities there will be to develop a successful strategy. Our strong track record is a compelling reason to give us a call.
