Any Criminal Charge May Have Enormous Ramifications

 

Most individuals and many attorneys do not fully understand the consequences of their actions or statements once they learn that they are the subject of an investigation or arrest. You need to start protecting your rights the moment that you learn that you are under investigation or charged with a criminal offense.

 

Attorney Lewis Chimes started his career as a criminal prosecutor in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. At the trial level, he has handled everything ranging from DUI, sexual assault, and murder to complex drug conspiracies. He has conducted white collar criminal investigations and represented witnesses before federal grand juries. Attorney Chimes also has handled criminal appeals in the state and federal courts and assisted victims of crime in asserting their rights in criminal proceedings.

Understand What Is at Stake

A criminal arrest or conviction can have significant consequences on your career and your education. If you are not an American citizen, you can face deportation. Even if you are not convicted, your job may be at risk. If you have a professional license, it can be subject to suspension or revocation.
