Dealing with the police and with the criminal justice system can be overwhelming and intimidating. Frequently, good people get tangled up in the criminal law by being involved in a misunderstanding, a domestic dispute or an arrest for drunk driving. Criminal law includes all types of felonies and misdemeanors, from capital offenses like homicide, to crimes punishable by a fine of less than $1000. At Frank S. Lombardi Law Associates, P.C. , we have the experience and the knowledge to provide our clients with practical advice at each stage of the criminal proceeding, including arrest and bail, arraignment, felony screening, pretrial conferences and jury trials. We advise our clients on how the case will progress through the criminal justice system and what the best strategy is to limit the impact of the criminal charges, at the present and into the future. One of our attorneys, in particular, Jodi M. Gladstone, M.Ed., Esq., was a prosecutor with the R.I. Department of the Attorney General for over seven years, and she has extensive experience practicing criminal law. She can help you navigate your way through the criminal justice system. Remember, you have the right to remain silent, so before you talk to the police, talk to us.
