Montgomery County Criminal Defense Lawyer
Dedicated to Protecting Your Rights & Freedom
Getting arrested for a crime is most likely one of the most stressful experiences you have ever had to suffer. In addition to the excruciating embarrassment you feel and the contemptuous and accusatory attitudes you have had to endure from law enforcement, you will be plagued with fears for the future. Without powerful representation, it would be understandable how anyone would be fearful about an upcoming trial. Your entire life, as well as the lives of any family members, will be impacted by the decision that is made.
Depending on the kind of crime, you could be facing extensive time spent in prison or jail or could be forced to pay enormous amounts of court fees and fines that take every last cent from your savings account. To protect yourself from these devastating consequences, do not delay in reaching out to our Montgomery County criminal defense attorney at Stornello Law Firm, P.C.
Committed to Protecting You Against False Allegations & Mistaken Convictions
Although the law is supposed to be designed to protect people from injustice, there have been times when the opposite has occurred. We are constantly seeing from the news and media instances where the unfortunate plaintiff turned out to be completely innocent of the crime they were accused of, but they have already spent time paying for events they were never involved in.
This is why we fight so aggressively to stop wrongful convictions from occurring. If there was a mistake made in the process of the arrest or in the collection of evidence, you can feel secure in the knowledge that our attorney does not rest until every single detail has been completely researched by experts. Law enforcement officials often miss out on critical information simply because they are not professionals in every field. By working with top scientists, doctors, and scholars, our firm can provide sound testimony about the veracity of your side, instead of depending on unreliable hearsay.
Consequences of a Guilty Conviction
It is important to know the potential consequences, so you can understand just how serious of a matter a conviction is. While many people know and dread the possibility of going to jail for precious months or years of their life, there are other serious repercussions too.
Some of these costly outcomes include:
- Having your civil assets and property seized, from your car to your house
- Enormous fines and court fees
- Extensive probation and parole
- Loss of your job and difficulty in gaining a new one
- Loss of professional licenses
- Loss of educational scholarship, financial aid, and government loans
- Denial of federal benefits
- Inability to own a gun or a firearm
- Loss of the right to vote
