Don’t let Sexting Ruin Your Reputation
One of the consequences of a sex crime charge, even if you are not convicted, is damage to a good reputation.

Our law firm is well known for innovative defense, as well as vigorous representation.
Sexting is the practice of sending nude or nearly nude photos via a text message — usually from one phone to another phone.
Sexting is not a crime between consenting adults — although it may cause personal or professional problems. The criminal issue arises when the sexting image is of an underage person. An adult male who receives sexting images of a 16 year old girl can be charged with child pornography. He would be placed on the registered list of sexual offenders if convicted.
Our law firm has experience working with forensic IT professionals and other computer experts to develop a strong criminal defense.
Aggressive Defense for High Profile Defendants
In some instances, a sex crime charge can be just as damaging as a conviction. Our law firm has experience stopping a criminal sex crime charge before it is filed. While past performance is no guarantee of future results, we represent professionals on a regular basis and understand the issues involved regarding reputation, licensing and professional ethics.
We will work very hard to keep your case away from the eyes of the media. An excellent way to avoid press attention is to prevent a criminal charge.
