Criminal & Family Law
Persons accused of criminal conduct need counsel and representation
that aids them to grasp the serious consequences of their case and to avoid
jail if possible. Similarly, individuals involved in difficult litigation
regarding custody of their children, child support, orders of protection and
other family court matters need a lawyer who fights for the client's best
interests and is unafraid of difficult cases. A lawyer who is compassionate,
sensitive and hard-working. Someone who can steer the client to ancillary
services and programs if appropriate.
Carl D. Birman has the experience, skills and commitment to make a
difference on his clients' behalf. He is compassionate and non-judgmental, and
works with the client to achieve the most advantageous result given the facts
and circumstances of the case.
