FAQ

I’m facing a DUI charge, what should I do?

Once accused of a DUI many people feel they have no other recourse than to plead guilty, and never bother to put up a defense. Few are aware, for instance, that frequently very serious errors occur during police procedures, which can result in a dismissal of charges. Consequently, it is imperative that you contact an attorney from The Law Office of Rachelle D. Carter before making a plea of any kind. The sooner we hear from you the greater the likelihood is that we can effectively mitigate the damages.

You’ve been accused of a serious crime, but you’re innocent. What now?

It’s everyone’s worst nightmare! But being innocent will not prevent you from being convicted. So what does it mean, if I’ve been arrested and charged with the crime? An arrest indicates that the Prosecutor feels strongly about having sufficient evidence against you to secure a conviction. To be certain there are innocent people languishing in prisons across the nation for crimes they didn’t commit. You must move swiftly to defend yourself against any false claims. Contact The Law Office of Rachelle D. Carter immediately, and we will fight to ensure that your innocence is protected and that you are not wrongfully convicted and sentenced.

I’m afraid I can’t afford a Defense Lawyer. Are they costly?
