People enter the criminal justice system at three basic points: at arrest, upon learning that they are the subject of a formal investigation, or by being accused by private citizens. Facing criminal charges at any of these stages is very frightening and stressful. Advice from a criminal defense attorney should be sought as soon as possible.
There are two basic criminal justice jurisdictions: STATE and FEDERAL. Mr. Metos has over thirty years of experience practicing in both of these courts.
