Being arrested for a criminal offense, or learning that you are facing a criminal investigation, can be one of the most traumatic experiences a person may face. It is imperative that anyone who finds themselves in this type of situation speak with a qualified and experienced defense lawyer right away. If retained early enough in the criminal investigation process, KB Law Office may be able to intervene and consult with the investigating officer or District Attorney in order to have charges dismissed or significantly reduced.
