If you are charged with a criminal offense, your life will dramatically change. You may be arrested, and you may have to post a bond to secure your release. You will certainly be faced with a choice as to what, if anything, you should say to the police. You will have to appear in court and answer the charges. A conviction could result in a jail sentence. These circumstances, and many others, require the assistance of an experienced criminal defense trial lawyer who is thoroughly familiar with the courtroom.

Criminal charges may be classified as either felonies or misdemeanors. A prosecution can occur in either a state or federal court. Dworken & Bernstein’s criminal law department is highly experienced in both felony and misdemeanor charges in state and federal courts. The experience ranges from such charges as homicides, including capital cases, sex offenses, computer-related crimes, theft offenses, robbery and burglary offenses, firearms offenses, drug offenses, including federal conspiracy charges, allegations of RICO violations, OVI/DUI and many others, in state and federal courts. There is no substitute for this kind of experience in your attorney if you are charged with a crime.
