The criminal justice system can be confusing, especially if you’ve never been charged with a crime.

We agree – the criminal justice system is complex.  And that’s why we believe it’s important to hire a criminal defense expert from Meyer Van Severen, S.C.  Every day our criminal defense attorneys have some interaction with the justice system.  We understand what must be done in every case we handle, and we know how to guide you through the process.
