Maine Criminal Defense Attorney
You might be visiting our web site because you were recently charged with a crime in Maine. You may be feeling anxious, worried about the arrest and what it means to your future. The truth is there are no “minor” criminal charges. Criminal Charges are always serious and future altering.
Anyone accused of a crime in Maine will have to deal with collateral consequences, which will impact your life. A one-time “slip-up, “lapse in judgment”, or general bad decision is a slippery quick fall to something much worse. Depending on how you have been charged, consequences can take the form of missed work or school to attend court, losing your job, losing your driver’s license, losing your right to possess firearms or losing your college loans or scholarship. Maine criminal charges demand your full attention and are very serious.
Once you have been charged with a criminal offense, your life will begin to change. Sometimes it is the social stigma associated with the criminal charge. Other times you will begin to see consequences as you lose your job or professional license. Also you will begin to worry about the unknown. This brings additional stress and challenges to your family.
