Protect Yourself Even After Conviction
You may think that once you have been convicted and your sentence is served, you can go back to your life like nothing happened. This is not the case. After serving a jail sentence, you may be responsible for fulfilling certain requirements as a condition of your release. If you make a mistake during this period, you might have to go back to prison. However, this is not a foregone conclusion. A good lawyer can help you throughout the post-conviction process and ensure that it goes as favorably as possible for you.

I understand what you are facing, and I want to help you move on with your life as easily as possible. It is easy to think that you do not need a lawyer after you have been convicted. However, there are several ways that I can help you, including:
- Helping you navigate the system, so that you do not accidentally do something wrong and face the consequences
- Helping you communicate with your parole officer including what to say and what not to say. In some cases, your lawyer may even be able to go with you to your meetings.
- Helping you obtain a sentence modification, pardon or expungement. There are several ways you can change your sentence even after conviction.
Violation of probation or parole is another crime. You should have an attorney to guide you and help you avoid it if possible. Remember, you always have a right to an attorney, even when you have not been charged with anything.
