Protecting Your Rights Through The Criminal Justice Process
A criminal charge can put your future at risk. A conviction for even a relatively minor crime will result in a criminal record, viewable to every potential employer, landlord and loan officer. That is why it is important to protect your rights with the help an experienced criminal defense lawyer. At Russo Law Offices LLC, our attorneys understand how to build a strong defense and will be there to guide you through the criminal justice process every step of the way, from arraignment to trial and, if necessary, appeals and motions for post-conviction relief.
We Defend Against A Wide Range Of Criminal Charges
We help people who are facing all types of criminal charges, including:
- Drug offenses
- Theft, robbery and burglary
- Weapons charges
- Fraud and other white collar crimes
We will do everything we can to get a dismissal of your charges and are prepared to fight for an acquittal at trial, if necessary.
Charged With Drunk Driving?
DUI and drunk driving charges can happen to anyone. For many people, this may be their first and only encounter with the criminal justice system. We can help protect your rights and explore potential defenses in an effort to get your charges dismissed or reduced.
Protecting Your Driving Privileges
If you have been accused of a traffic offense, such as speeding, reckless or careless driving, or driving without a license, it can be tempting to simply pay your fine and move on. However, paying a traffic ticket is the same as pleading guilty and will result in points being added to your driving record. These points can add up quickly, and if you accumulate too many, you run the risk of losing your driving privileges. Traffic offenses should be taken seriously. We can fight to reduce the potentially harsh consequences of traffic violations.
Protecting Your Children’s Future
Our criminal defense practice also includes juvenile law representation. A youthful mistake that results in a criminal charge can derail a child’s future before it has even begun. We have extensive experience representing minors in juvenile court and are attentive to the additional challenges that come along with these types of charges. Keep in mind that even a sealed criminal record can impact your child’s future, which is why it is important to ensure your child as skilled legal representation in their corner.
