The Gowen Group attorneys take a unique and comprehensive approach to criminal law cases. We make a point of learning about our client’s life and their goals, so that a client receives the most effective representation. The Gowen Group recognizes that even a satisfactory result on a criminal case may have a lasting negative impact on a client if the attorney does not understand the client’s background.
Most notably, Gowen Group attorneys work to make sure that a client’s contact with the criminal justice system will not prevent him or her from maintaining employment or beginning a new career. Unfortunately, most employers and licensing bodies will consider an applicant’s criminal record before offering employment. In fact, there are over 30,000 statutory “bars to employment” nationwide. For that reason, it is imperative that a client learns all of the consequences a decision in criminal court may have. Learn more.
