What happens, what is the process?

In criminal cases an individual is first arraignment and a bond amount is set. After the arraignment comes the pre-trial conference. At the pre-trial conference you can either enter a plea or set the matter for trial. Lastly, if a plea is entered or a when a trial is finished the matter is set for sentencing. It is important to have an attorney through all the stages of the process.

In divorce and child custody cases the process various from case-to-case and from county-to-county.

For driver's license restorations, testimonial letters need to be gathered, an alcohol assessment and a 10 panel drug screen need to be completed as well. It usually takes about 2 months to gather all this information and I will email you out a packet of information before you even begin the process. Once the application is submitted I will provide two mock interviews to better prepare you. It usually takes about 3 months for a hearing to be set after the application is submitted.
