Criminal law is, perhaps, the most dramatic and exciting area of practice. (When was the last time you saw a television series that centered around a group of tax attorneys?) It’s also an area of law that is greatly misunderstood. From the process of an arrest to the rights afforded criminal defendants (and those who are not yet criminal defendants), there are a great many myths and misconceptions. Below are articles that address some of the most common questions and issues related to criminal law.
