Defending Against Sex Crimes
Even the mere allegation of a sex crime can be enough to destroy your reputation. That is why it is important to seek help from a skilled lawyer as soon as possible if you are charged with or are under investigation for a suspected sex crime.
At The Law Office of Jordan K. Van Matre, P.C., our attorney truly believes in the idea that all suspects are innocent until proven guilty. A former prosecutor, our lawyer understands how the other side builds its case. We use this knowledge to help you build a strong defense against criminal sexual charges.

It can be difficult to know what to do when charged with a sex crime. The most important thing you can do is to seek legal representation immediately. We can help ensure that your rights remain protected every step of the way.
A Conviction Can Follow You For Life
Perhaps more so than other criminal conviction, a sex crimes record will impact your life for years to come. In addition to the possibility of a prison sentence, you may lose your job, custody of your children and any professional licenses you may have. You may also have to register as a sex offender, making it difficult to find future employment and limiting the areas in which you may live.
Despite all of this, it is important to keep in mind that defenses are available. We will thoroughly review all of the evidence surrounding your charge and will attack the state’s case at every opportunity. We also handle post-conviction appeals. In every case, we are committed to protecting your legal rights.
