There are few things more frightening than an arrest, except maybe a criminal charge. If you were charged with a crime, your biggest concern right now is likely making the charge go away. This is true regardless of whether you are innocent or guilty. At Arshad, Pangere & Warring, LLP, our Merrillville criminal defense lawyers are prepared to fight on your behalf for an outcome that allows you to move forward with your life. Sometimes this means obtaining reduced charges while other times it means achieving dropped charges altogether. For the best possible outcome of your criminal case, contact our Northwest Indiana criminal defense lawyers today.
If you have been arrested and charged with a crime, or if a loved one is awaiting a criminal hearing, the worst thing you can do is bury your head in the sand and hope that the charges will go away. Criminal charges do not go away. If anything, without the proper defense, they become worse, turning from one charge into two, three, or possibly four. If you hope to obtain a favorable outcome, the best thing you can do is act fast. Your proactive measures may mean that your defense team has enough time to secure the evidence necessary to obtain a dismissal, reduce your charges, or attain a favorable plea agreement. If your case goes to trial, it could mean the difference between a guilty and not-guilty verdict.
Our Merrillville criminal defense attorneys at Arshad, Pangere & Warring, LLP, are experienced and know how to navigate a wide range of criminal law cases. Whether you are faced with a costly traffic violation or a white collar crime charge, you can trust our team to handle your case with the type of professionalism, insight, and strength indicative of larger firms. Some cases we have adeptly handled in the past include the following:
In addition to helping Indiana residents preserve their reputations by combating criminal charges, we also handle record expungements. A criminal record can haunt you for the rest of your life. In addition to making it difficult for you to find gainful employment or a decent place to live, a criminal record can also hurt your reputation. There is a stigma surrounding convictions of any kind and you may find it difficult to sustain platonic, romantic, or professional relationships once you reveal your criminal background. Fortunately, you may be able to clear your name and put your legal troubles behind you via record expungement.
Unlike in most other states, Indiana allows you to clear your name even if you were convicted of a crime. However, not all crimes are eligible for expungement. Convictions pertaining to homicides, sexual offenses, human/sex trafficking, and official misconduct cannot be undone unless, somehow, you are able to prove your innocence beyond a reasonable doubt. That said, our Merrillville criminal defense lawyers at Arshad, Pangere & Warring, LLP, can help you explore your options regardless of the reason for your arrest and fight to have your name cleared.
If you were arrested for a crime, you need to act now and contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
