Criminal Defense Lawyers in Portland Maine

Criminal Defense Lawyers in Portland Maine

Criminal convictions, especially in the state of Maine, can follow you forever. Maine has no expungement process, so your criminal record isn’t sealed after a set number of years. And if you are asked if you have ever been convicted of a crime, you will have to answer yes. That is why we don’t want you to simply plead guilty because you are feeling pressure to do so or you think that it will be the fastest way to get the whole ordeal behind you. If you plead guilty that conviction will stay with you.

These days, we believe, the stakes are higher than ever. With so much personal information available online, your criminal history is just getting easier and easier for potential employers to find. This record will limit your options for your future.

We absolutely don’t want to see that happen. If you have been accused of a crime in the State of Maine, please give us a call to see what your choices are. We can help.
