You should have a lawyer in your corner to mitigate your exposure of jeopardy.

Prosecutors and judges  will not be going "easy" on you if you plead guilty without a lawyer, they say that to get a plea, and then just beat you down with the maximum penalties.

The Komorn Law firm will find the mistakes, inaccuracies and omissions with the prosecutor's case against you while doing a dive deep into the specific details and circumstances to find the most favorable outcome. We will do the best to minimize your liabilities while maximizing your defenses.

We can answer any question you have about your arrest, citation or case. Or if you have already hired a lawyer, CALL US FOR A SECOND OPINION.

We have been instrumental in fixing other lawyers' complete failures, and have found that most lawyers just want to get you to pay a bunch of money to take a plea deal.


NEVER ACCEPT A PLEA DEAL until you get a second opinion from KOMORN LAW.
