Criminal Defense

Being convicted of a misdemeanor or a felony is a serious matter. A criminal conviction can result in prison time, hefty fees, loss of current and future employment, and a permanent criminal record. If you are charged with a crime, it is always wise to hire an experienced criminal defense law firm. Even if you are only suspected of a crime, it is a good idea to retain legal counsel. Often law enforcement will want to interview you. Anything you say can be used against you later on down the road. If you do agree to an interview, be sure to have Watson & Watson there to represent you.
