    • Best possible outcome

      Mr Albo worked my case, which wasn’t an easy one. He managed to negotiate my charges down with the best possible outcome.
      My family and I were in a state of disbelief when he told us the results and they cried tears of joy!
      I will always be recommending him for anyone who manages to get themselves in trouble like I did.

    Criminal defense lawyers take on many types of cases and can help a variety of clients. Common types of cases that a defense lawyer typically works on are theft, fraud, reckless driving, and assault.

    There are many ways that a DUI lawyer can provide you with valuable assistance. They will provide legal support so that you can successfully defend yourself against the charge you are facing. A competent and experienced DUI lawyer will evaluate your charge to find any weaknesses or possible flaws. Sometimes there are errors that the police officer made when they conducted the field sobriety test, or they may have failed to explain your rights to you. These are critical mistakes that can result in your charge being modified or dismissed completely. A lawyer will aggressively defend your rights so that you do not suffer the worst consequences.

    The penalties for a traffic violation are serious, even if it’s just for the first offense. You should not take traffic tickets lightly. If you are handed a traffic violation, you can face a fine which increases $6 for each mile you drive over the speed limit. The fine can be even higher if you were speeding in a construction zone or near a school. For multiple offenses, you could face a misdemeanor. Regardless of what traffic violation you have committed, you can get help. A qualified traffic lawyer can provide you with legal services so that you can get quality legal assistance throughout your case.

    Suffering injuries due to the actions of a reckless driver can impact your life in major ways. In addition to sustaining multiple serious injuries, a reckless driver can cause you to miss work for an extended period of time, experience pain and suffering, and experience other losses. Luckily, you can recover several economic and non-economic damages if you have been a victim of a reckless driver. Take action as soon as possible and contact a qualified reckless driving lawyer who can provide personalized legal assistance and work on your case so that you can get the full compensation that you are entitled to receive.

    White collar crime is an area that encompasses many types of criminal activity. This includes fraud, tax evasion, embezzlement, identity theft, and money laundering.

These crimes are some of the most common types of crimes committed.
