Civil rights cases have changed our country's history. Imagine where we would be today without Brown v. Board of Education. We see, with recent federal court decisions, that the civil rights movement is alive and well in the courts.
Criminal defense involves more than just the jury trials shown on T.V. The process can even start before an arrest and can continue long after a conviction. You want a lawyer who appreciates the complexity of and stakes involved at each stage of a criminal case.
