Avoid A Criminal Record

Even a minor misdemeanor on your record can become a significant obstacle in your life. A criminal record can prevent you from advancing in your career. You may have more trouble being approved to rent an apartment or obtain a loan to buy real estate if you have a conviction on your record.

These are a few examples of why it is well worth your while to fight for your future if you have been accused of a felony or misdemeanor such as a:

  • Theft crime: shoplifting, robbery or a white collar crime
  • Violent crime: assault, domestic violence, arson, kidnapping, murder, homicide or manslaughter
  • Weapons crime: felon in possession of a firearm, aggravated assault
  • Drug crime: possession, manufacture, distribution or trafficking of a banned or controlled substance
  • DUI/DWI: driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol or driving while intoxicated

Mr. Ozment has a track record of favorable outcomes on behalf of clients who had been accused and charged of a wide range of criminal offenses. The definition of success varies from case to case. Positive results have included dismissed charges, reduced charges, reduced penalties, deferred sentencing and probation. The client's point of view is the starting point in every defense strategy.
