Criminal Law

The first order of business when you consult with a criminal law attorney is to establish a foundation of trust. Honesty is essential for both a client and a lawyer. At Silin Law Firm PLLC in Ocean Springs, you will sense a friendly, accepting atmosphere right away. There is no shame in disclosing the facts as you know them to the attorney who will fight for your best interests before a prosecutor, judge and/or jury.

At Silin Law Firm PLLC, attorney Rita Nahlik Silin understands your most urgent objectives:

  • To stay out of jail
  • To protect your clean record
  • To put your criminal case behind you and move on with your life

Taking time to hear your version of what happened is time well spent for attorney Rita Silin as she prepares to pursue the best outcome attainable in your case. The evidence before the court, the inclinations of the judge who hears your case and other variables will help determine the result. A persuasive presentation by your lawyer may convince a judge that the charges against you do not justify a felony, but rather a misdemeanor case. Or a judge may dismiss your case altogether. No criminal defense lawyer can promise a particular outcome. However, a well-prepared defense can make a great difference for your future.
