The Aftermath of a Criminal Conviction

As many Americans know, a criminal conviction can have serious immediate and long-term consequences. This is true even for seemingly minor offenses, like marijuana charges. After you have paid your fine, served your prison sentence, and/or finished court-ordered community service, a criminal conviction will remain on your record. Unfortunately, this means it can impact your life for years to come.

Depending on the crime, conviction could result in the following consequences:

  • Reduced employment opportunities
  • Difficulty finding housing
  • Social stigma and a ruined reputation
  • The stripping of your right to vote and bear arms
  • Listings in stigmatizing databases

A criminal case does not have to ruin your life or compromise your future. Our criminal defense lawyers will work day and night to mount a strong defense strategy for you, making sure to tailor it to your case’s unique needs.
