When your liberty and livelihood are on the line, experience matters. My philosophy is that any person—regardless of age, upbringing, education, occupation, or life experience—is capable of making a mistake. Perhaps you’re visiting this page because you or someone you love has made a mistake. Perhaps the person accusing you of an offense has. I have helped thousands of people facing charges from minor theft offenses to homicide indictments. I’m used to meeting people on their worst day, and it’s always my goal to improve my client’s outlook. Things immediately look a little brighter when you have someone knowledgeable in your corner and that’s just one of many reasons that time is of the essence in securing representation. Believe it or not, there are only 6 possible defenses to a criminal case—call me and we can discuss which scenario matches your situation. When experience matters, make your very best choice for criminal defense: Amber L. Forrester.

Legal Answers
7 Questions Answered
Q. Can please let explain what exacuting a warrant means
A: It depends on the sort of warrant it is—for example, executing a search warrant means law enforcement arriving at a location where a judge has allowed them to search during a specific time and performing the search.
Q. Looking to retain a lawyer for a certificate of appealability. How much would it cost?
A: It sounds as though you want to file a writ of habeas corpus, and attorney fees vary by lawyer and complexity of a filing, so your best option is to speak to several attorneys who actually do that work to get an idea of price. Not all criminal attorneys have experience in filing habeas claims and the prices could differ widely around the state. Good luck!
Q. can a person work In a Delaware school district If they have a felony but the felony is not against a child.
A: Whether a person can work in a Delaware school district is a question for someone familiar with Delaware law, but in terms of expungement, if the offense is eligible for expungement under all of the other variables, the 5 year waiting period begins at the completion of probation.
