The attorney who represents you in a criminal case may be more important than the crime you have been charged with committing. A criminal conviction can cost you your freedom, considerable amounts of money, your job and your reputation. Some convictions can require you to register with local police when you relocate to a new city, and the registration is a lifetime requirement. A criminal conviction can also prevent you from obtaining some types of employment in the future. You could even be prevented from getting funding for a new business or licensed for certain types of positions.
Farar & Lewis have represented clients who have been charged with offenses serious enough that they were facing life sentences. The experience, knowledge and attention to detail at the firm, however, prevented them from such harsh sentences. In many cases, the actions of Farar & Lewis resulted in the charges being reduced to a much lower offense, and, in some cases, acquittal on all charges.
