Sex crimes are one of the only crimes that can begin to negatively affect an individual from the moment an accusation is made. The stigma associated with this charge can follow those affected for a significant amount of time. Worse yet, a conviction carries serious collateral consequences that will impact virtually every aspect of one’s livelihood for a lifetime.

“The vast majority of my clients are unfamiliar with the criminal justice system. Most of them are generally upstanding community members who, for whatever reason, fell into the wrong situation. My job has never been to judge the people in these situations, not as a prosecutor and not as a defense counsel. My job is to litigate fiercely on my clients’ behalf and make sure my clients get the best possible outcome.” — Kate A. Frame, Founding Attorney
