Damico & Stockstill, Attorneys at Law

Public figures facing charges may have more to lose

When you are a public figure you are likely not a stranger to having eyes on you. Sometimes you find that life becomes a symbiotic world of back scratching by both strangers and good friends. This is how you stay relevant and get ahead.

Sometimes, however, that "I will scratch your back if you scratch mine," gets twisted slightly and becomes more of an, "I will turn my head if you will turn yours," and you find you are involved in more problems than you ever bargained for. And when you find out that you are under investigation, your world threatens to implode. News of this may make every former colleague and back-scratching ally decide to keep you at more than arm's length.

Which is why, if you even suspect you are under investigation, it would serve you well to contact Damico & Stockstill, Attorneys at Law.
