Consider Your Options

Let's say you're a college student or young professional charged with a misdemeanor drug possession and you have your whole future ahead of you. You may know that you will be subject to background checks for certifications and/or professional licenses in fields like medicine, finance and education (along with numerous others). Or you may still not yet know what your career path will be. In either event, the threat of having your future employment opportunities limited by the possibility of a background check should help motivate you to engage a skilled criminal defense attorney to help you fight for a better outcome.

If you are charged with a crime and are not a citizen, you may face additional problems in terms of your status or renewal. You might want to speak with an immigration attorney as well about the potential impact of any deal, even a violation like Disorderly Conduct. Although a violation shouldn't account to a "crime of moral turpitude," you should still look carefully into the ramifications of your circumstances.

★★★★★
Elizabeth Crotty represented me for a misdemeanor assault charge and got it completely dismissed and sealed. She took the time to listen to my side of the story, understand what my concerns were, and worked with me on a strategy for success. She clearly laid out the entire process that we would be going through together, and she fully explained all the possible outcomes and what to expect at each step of the process... Vincent

Elizabeth represented me in an assault matter and was able to convince the Assistant District Attorney to dismiss my case within a matter of weeks. Additionally, she was able to do so for less than what I was anticipating on spending on my case. I am more than grateful for her incredibly fast and attentive responsiveness and communication as it made the entire ordeal as painless as possible... William

Jeremy answered his phone at 3am to help secure my son's release without bail, within hours. He went straight to the people that mattered and kept my son informed in the cells, giving him hope when no one was communicating with us. He was helpful to the extreme; very kind; very calming for my son; very confident he would be released. The fact he answered the phone, in bed, at 3am, when he was asleep was stunning... Sarah
