If you find yourself suddenly being charged with bookmaking or wagering, prosecuting attorneys will usually stop at nothing to gain a conviction. Not only do they want to make a name for themselves, but they also want to appear strong on the issue of gambling. However, just because you have been charged with these crimes does not mean you are guilty. In fact, many people charged with these crimes are often just the opposite. Whether it’s failing to understand local rules or regulations or simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time, it’s a fact that these charges can be extremely serious. When you are charged with these crimes, don’t hesitate to get legal representation as soon as possible. Contact us here at Raiser and Kenniff, and let us put our knowledge and experience to work for you.

A Life-Changing Experience
When you are charged with these crimes, the result can be a life-changing experience if you do not have solid legal counsel by your side. If you are convicted of these charges, you will not only find yourself facing a long prison sentence, but also other consequences as well. For example, a felony conviction from these charges will ensure you lose your right to vote or own a firearm, along with the loss of any professional licenses or permits. Rather than let this happen to you, let us here at Raiser and Kenniff work with you to make sure your rights are protected in each and every way.

Empowering Our Clients
Along with our reputation for helping our clients gain their freedom, we at Raiser and Kenniff are also known for empowering our clients during the legal process. Since we believe all our clients deserve our best efforts, we ensure they are well-informed throughout their legal proceedings. By making our clients aware of the circumstances surrounding their case and the possible outcomes, they can explain their side of the story much better and allow us to plan a strategy that will lead to a favorable outcome.

We Take the Tough Cases
While some lawyers tend to shy away from bookmaking and wagering cases, we at Raiser and Kenniff do just the opposite. Never afraid to accept a challenging case, we are always willing to work hard to find out exactly what happened and help our clients clear their names. Because these cases often have many complexities, it takes attorneys who have knowledge and experience in these cases to gather the evidence necessary to win when the case goes to trial. By being able to offer expert advice and support during these cases, clients can count on the attorneys at Raiser and Kenniff to lead them through the process and ensure prosecutors are not allowed to intimidate and coerce them along the way. While this may not happen in all of these cases, our experience has shown that prosecutors are often eager to gain convictions in these cases to portray themselves as being tough on crime. Rest assured, if you are facing these charges and dealing with an overzealous prosecutor, we at Raiser and Kenniff can give you the legal assistance needed during these difficult circumstances.
