Jail time???

Every case is different. Think about it this way: You can’t simply walk into a doctor’s office with a throbbing headache and expect an immediate and ironclad answer to whether or not you need surgery. In most instances, some ibuprofen will do, but, in others, a tumor is diagnosed requiring surgery. Much like your doctor, we need to ͞run our own tests i.e. review the police reports, witness statements, expert reports, etc. before we can opine about the likely outcomes of your case. We believe that actively working your case and getting it ͞trial read best prepares us in dealing with the best opportunity to achieve a favorable result.
