I was facing some serious DUI charges. It could have resulted in some significant jail time! I contacted Erin who agreed to handle my case at a very reasonable fee. She was engaging and easy to talk to. She answered all my questions thoroughly and with clarity. She has an in-depth knowledge of her field combined with a good working relationship with the court system. I am happy to say that thanks to Erin I got the best possible results at my court appearances. 

Donald

I hired attorney Field for my son who is in prison and had an additional felony warrant served. She was outstanding. She called me right back and explained everything to me. Her fee was extremely reasonable. She contacted my son and went to see him. She explained every bit of the process as we were going through it. She truly was an advocate for my son. We are both very pleased with the final outcome. I highly recommend the services of Attorney Erin Field.

Lucy

Attorney Field is amazing. She is extremely intelligent, dedicated, respectful, genuine and honest. Her knowledge about the criminal justice process and system itself is impeccable. She was upfront and realistic when speaking with me about what to expect and I was never left in the dark throughout the entire case. Attorney Field is extremely reliable, easy to get in touch with and prompt when showing up to court. I highly recommend her.

How to Beat an Enfield Shoplifting or Larceny Charge

For a first offense larceny or shoplifting charge,, especially for juvenile charges, it is often possible to get the charge dropped in exchange for restitution and community service, which would prevent you from having a criminal record. I will also argue for Accelerated Rehabilitation, which will allow you to be put on probation and have the charges dropped from your record after 13 months if you don’t commit any additional offenses. With more serious felony charges, I can dispute the severity of the case and the value of the items stolen, and argue that they should be reduced to a point where the penalties are less severe.

Whatever the situation in your exact case, having an experienced Enfield criminal defense lawyer fighting for you can make a huge difference in the outcome, whether you are working for the best possible plea deal, or taking your case all the way to a jury trial.
