Don’t Let A Criminal Charge Ruin Your Future
At Ayla O'Brien Law Firm, P.C., the primary goal in all criminal cases is to minimize or even eliminate the harm the charges have on clients’ lives. Attorney O’Brien will work with you to thoroughly evaluate your case and the options available to obtain the best possible outcome.
You Have Options
Sometimes the best option for adjudication is a trial before either a jury or a judge. If a trial is appropriate in your criminal case, Ms. O’Brien will go to the mat and fight for you to obtain a not guilty verdict. Alternatively, a negotiated guilty plea may be the best resolution.
Several diversion programs may be available to resolve your criminal case. These programs may allow you to avoid a criminal record, incarceration, driver’s license suspension and more.
These programs include:
- Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD)
- Community Accountability Program (CAP)
- Relief under Section 17 of the Drug Act
- Intermediate Punishment Program
- Veterans Treatment Program
- District Court Diversion Program
- Juvenile court (for minors)
Taking advantage of one of these programs can help you avoid jail and other consequences of a criminal conviction. In some cases, alternative sentencing options may be available. As your advocate, Ayla O’Brien will explain these options and advise you of their benefits and drawbacks so you can make informed decisions about your case.
A Defense Strategy Tailored To Your Needs
It is important to note that these diversion programs are not for everyone. Depending on your circumstances, it may be in your best interest to take your case to trial if reasonable negotiations with the district attorney’s office are not feasible.
