Fighting Criminal Charges Is Important To Protecting Your Future
Being charged with a crime is a very scary experience. You can face jail time, probation, fines, court costs, suspension of your driver’s license, community service and other penalties. Even a relatively minor criminal charge can still have negative consequences. Running criminal background checks is becoming more common for employers, landlords, lenders and other organizations. Having a criminal record can prevent you from numerous opportunities, even if you were convicted of a misdemeanor.
At Godbey Law, we understand the effect that a conviction may have on your life. Our Cincinnati criminal defense lawyers work diligently to minimize the consequences of criminal charges. We will fight for you and vigorously defend you against the charges, taking the matter to trial before a judge or jury. If the evidence against you is overwhelming, we will still argue and negotiate for a reduction of the charges against you. Sometimes, we can even get our clients into a diversion program which can result in all charges being dismissed. If the prosecutor will not negotiate, we will go to trial to protect your rights.
