A Note From Rico

“I understand the criminal system and all of its flaws. By understanding the flaws in our criminal justice system, I am able to point clients in the right direction when it comes to taking a plea deal or taking a case all the way to trial. I’ve done both and sometimes a plea is the right answer, and sometimes trial is the right answer. You need an attorney who understands this system to make sure you are making the best decisions possible when it comes to your case – I am that attorney.” Rico Robinson
