A: Yes you should be concerned whenever you get a criminal charge as you do have two. But if you get a good lawyer you can rest assured that you are doing all that you can to win, reduce or eliminate the penalties that your facing. Most of us criminal lawyers offer a free in office consultation, so I would suggest that you set one up. The only think I will tell you is that hiring a lawyer is like any other good or service you purchase. Generally, the more you pay the better the service (attorney) you get, so don't be penny wise and dollar foolish.
