Getting arrested for a misdemeanor conviction is more than just an inconvenience or embarrassment.

Experience, insight and knowledge are essential for avoiding missteps and successfully reaching the other side. Mr. Meaden can guide you through the process while preserving your dignity, reputation and finances.
