A criminal charge or jail time can negatively impact the rest of your life. The Law Offices of Shane O’Donnell can provide you with the personalized attention your case needs and deserves.
Any criminal charge can cost you far more than court costs and fines. Today virtually anyone can gain access to the criminal records of others. Current or prospective employers, universities and schools, financial institutions, and landlords can all gain access to this information, which means a criminal conviction can have lifelong consequences for you and your family.
Also, for more serious criminal charges, significant jail or prison time is a very real possibility if you are not represented by a highly-skilled criminal defense attorney.
It is important that you take immediate steps to retain the services of an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
By getting the right legal representation, you will take the important steps necessary to avoid serving significant jail or prison time or what can be the de facto life sentence of having a criminal conviction that negatively impacts all aspects of your life for years to come.
