Defending the Rights of Criminal Defendants in Northwest Indiana

Getting arrested can be a frightening experience, and learning you have been charged with a crime can be even more stressful. It is only natural to want the criminal charge to disappear as quickly as possible – whether or not you committed the crime. Fortunately, you have the right to defend against allegations, and you should also do so with the help of an NWI criminal defense attorney. 

The criminal justice system is confusing and does not make it easy for defendants to defend themselves. It is critical that you have the right criminal defense lawyer who knows how to build the most effective defense possible. Contact the legal team at the law firm of Arshad, Pangere & Warring, LLP, for the assistance you need to protect your finances, freedom, job, and reputation.

  • Traffic violations

Many people believe that there is no need for legal defense representation for misdemeanor charges or traffic violations. However, without the right defense, you could be wrongfully convicted or face unnecessarily harsh penalties, including costly fines and other expenses, loss of your driving privileges, and more. Always learn how an experienced NWI criminal defense attorney can help.

The Lasting Consequences of a Criminal Conviction

When you are convicted of a crime, you will receive a sentence from the judge. This sentence will be based on Indiana law, the recommendation by the prosecutor, your prior record, and any other mitigating or aggravating factors in your case. Some possible penalties include:

  • Time in jail or state prison
  • Fines and court costs
  • Probation
  • Community service
  • Driver’s license suspension

In addition to these already serious penalties, a criminal conviction will go on your permanent record. This record might be accessed by prospective employers and landlords, as well as professional licensing agencies and educational institutions. Having a conviction can make it difficult to find or keep your job, find suitable housing, or pursue certain professions. Avoiding a conviction is our priority, and we have many defense tactics we can use.

Even if you do not avoid a conviction, we know how to negotiate with prosecutors and present mitigating factors to reduce the consequences you face. If you already have a criminal record, we can determine whether you might be eligible for expungement.
