If you are considering taking a plea deal, make sure to consult with an experienced Vermont criminal defense attorney before doing so. Plea agreements can have collateral consequences that might not be readily understood by a Vermont defendant who is not represented by an attorney. At Burke Law we offer free case consultations and can help you weigh the pros and cons of any potential plea agreement.
