You Should Take All Criminal Charges Seriously

Too many people make the mistake of assuming their criminal charges are something they can ignore or try to handle themselves. Every criminal charge can affect your future. One too many traffic violations can cost you your driving privileges. A DUI can mean fines and jail time. Drug charges, burglary and robbery can have devastating consequences if you are convicted.

You need a lawyer who has considerable experience in criminal law. Melissa Barry has been practicing law for 14 years, 6 of which have been in criminal defense. Her career has included working for the Las Vegas City Attorney’s Office representing the city in misdemeanor prosecutions and as a deputy county attorney with the Mohave County Attorney’s Office. In her position as a deputy county attorney, she worked on misdemeanors, felonies and juvenile offenses, conducting bench trials and jury trials. She also has advanced training in DUI and domestic violence prosecution. You can rely on her knowledge and skill no matter how serious your case is.

At Ease Law Provides Comprehensive Criminal Defense Representation

With her experience on the prosecutor’s side of cases, attorney Barry knows how to exploit any weaknesses in their cases. She can also anticipate what they are likely to do and can counter their tactics. She represents people in a broad range of misdemeanor and felony charges, including:

  • License suspensions
  • Traffic tickets
  • Theft and shoplifting
  • Burglary and robbery
  • Weapons offenses
  • Drug crimes
  • Assault and domestic violence
  • Child pornography
  • Murder

Just let her know what charges you are facing so that she can let you know how the law is likely to apply in your specific case.

Need To Seal Your Record?

In addition to fighting criminal charges, attorney Barry helps people seal their criminal records. Expungement (record sealing) allows people to seal certain crimes so they are not visible to people conducting background checks. If your record is sealed, you can deny that you have been arrested or convicted. It is important to note, however, that some parties, such as prosecutors and government authorities, can still see your record after the offense has been sealed.

Sealing a record requires following a complex process. Trying to do it yourself can be challenging, so it is better to work with an experienced lawyer like Ms. Barry.
