What Kind of Service Can You Expect?

"This is a true story. Recently I had a client contact me while he was being arrested. I was texting him while he was being arrested and I assured him that as soon as I returned to the courthouse I would see about having his warrant lifted. Nice level of service. It gets better.

I was in the dentist's chair waiting to have two fillings done at the time. Granted, I didn't text while the dentist was drilling but that's only because I couldn't see my phone to text with the dentist literally in my face. Three hours later, while my face was still slightly numb, he was released. I can't guarantee results in any particular case, but I will promise my best efforts even while at the dentist."

- Attorney Richard Jones

Facing charges of violent crimes can result in severe penalties upon conviction. It is important for your future that you understand the consequences of having a criminal record. Criminal conviction will incur a criminal record, which could lead to you being denied various opportunities. For example, many employers require a background check before hiring you. Similarly, managers of apartment complexes can require a background check as well. If you are found to have a criminal conviction, then you could be denied employment, housing, and / or other benefits.

There are also convictions that can result in disqualification from candidacy for future employment. For example, some commercial driving companies require that you have a clean driving record. If you are charged and convicted of DWI, then you could be denied employment and disqualified from any possible future employment with commercial driving companies.
