Being accused of a crime can be a frightening and daunting experience. This is especially true for those who have never dealt with the criminal justice system before. Suddenly, your life no longer seems your own. You must comply with court procedures and may be at risk for jail or prison time, heavy financial penalties, probation, and other court-ordered actions. Your job or career may be interrupted, your reputation may be damaged, and your personal and professional relationships put at risk. This is a recipe for having your life spin out of control. 

At such a time, you need the calm and steady guidance of an attorney who truly cares about you as an individual and in seeing that you have the most effective defense possible. After all, that is your right. Despite what the prosecution asserts about you, you are innocent until proven guilty. With the right representation, you can maximize your chances for reaching an optimum outcome. At Watkins Law Firm, you can work with an experienced trial lawyer with a decade of practice. From the beginning of your case throughout its duration, you will always have direct access to Attorney John Watkins, who will have your back every step of the way.
