Protecting Your Rights And Future After A Criminal Arrest Or Investigation

You have much to lose when you have been accused of a crime. Do all that you can to avoid having a lasting criminal record.

Working with experienced defense attorneys who focus on your desired outcomes is the best thing you can do for yourself after being arrested or charged with a crime such as:

  • A violent crime (assault, battery, homicide, arson or kidnapping)
  • A drug crime (possession, distribution or trafficking)
  • Driving while intoxicated or driving under the influence of drugs (DWI/DUI)
  • A white collar crime (fraud, forgery, money laundering or embezzlement)
  • A sex crime (sexual assault, solicitation of a minor, solicitation of a prostitute or child pornography)

Your criminal charges may not be listed here, but our defense lawyers are well prepared to help you pursue the most favorable outcome attainable in your case. To protect your rights, do not discuss your case with friends, family members or the police before you have legal counsel.

If you are under investigation but have not been charged yet, this is the best time to bring an attorney on board.

At Bell, Shivas & Bell, P.C., we have helped prevent charges from being filed at all. This may be an option in your case if we advocate for you during an investigation. We welcome the opportunity to explain how we can help you, no matter what has happened in your case so far.

Your future may be on the line if you have been charged with a felony. Even some misdemeanors have penalties that make life difficult. Both felonies and misdemeanors on your record can make it hard for you to find a job or fulfill other objectives that you have in your life.

With previous experience at larger law firms, each of us has chosen to work at a smaller law firm so that we can work for our clients directly. We believe in personalized service because trusting attorney-client relationships make strong cases.
