She has completed over 100 criminal jury trials, and has handled ground-breaking criminal appellate litigation.  

A speedy consultation with a lawyer is necessary after arrest, a call from the police for questioning, in the face of a suspicion that a crime may have been committed, or in the case that you may be suspected of one.  Even an innocent person needs the help of a criminal defense attorney to establish their innocence and to ensure that their rights are protected.  It is never a good idea to discuss conduct which may constitute a criminal offense with the police, with persons who may be witnesses, or may be accused along with you, or even with family members. You should speak only to counsel.
