When you've been arrested, you need someone in your corner who knows the law and will fight for you
Being arrested is terrifying – even if it's not the first time. Your life is suddenly put on hold and you panic about the possibility of jail time. You are at the mercy of the police who will do everything in their power to elicit a confession from you. But even in the middle of all this chaos, you have someone in your corner: your defense attorney.
Roberta Brooks has been practicing criminal defense for 18 years. Having been a police officer and field examiner for the National Labor Relations Board, Roberta has an intimate knowledge of how police officers think and what they look for when building a case. She will investigate their investigations, find the gaps in evidence, and pinpoint the holes in their theories to build your defense. She will also help you identify what the charges are and what your best option is. Roberta understands that sometimes people make mistakes – but not all mistakes deserve the consequences that the District Attorney throws at defendants. She will make sure that your side of the story is heard without putting you in deeper jeopardy. She will fight the fight for you to get the best possible outcome.
