Do You Need a Lawyer for a Sexual Assault Charge?

Contact us. We can help.

>> Read reviews from clients

Sexual assault charges (aka "sex crimes") are among the most serious charges on the books. Not only are the sentences often very long (in some cases they rival the sentences imposed for homicide!), the public accusation of a sex crime itself can ruin a person's reputation irreparably; nevermind whether it evolves into a criminal case (which is exponentially more harmful to one's reputation).

Hire a Lawyer Before You Say Anything!

It cannot be said often enough: No matter what you are charged with, you should usually not say anything to the police without a lawyer present. It is usually unwise to tell your side of the story or try to talk your way out of an arrest - you will quite possibly end up getting yourself in even more trouble. Dealing with the criminal justice system can be complex, and the guidance of an experienced lawyer is often very helpful.
