Answers To Questions Frequently Asked About Criminal Defense
Do I need a lawyer, even for a minor charge?
No charge is minor. Convictions, even for misdemeanors, can damage your future. Always take the time to speak to a lawyer to learn about your options.
How quickly should I call a lawyer?
The simple answer is – immediately. Even if you haven’t been arrested, and are only a “person of interest,” the sooner you have a lawyer on your side, the more time he or she will have to learn about your case and prepare a solid defense. Remember, you’re never required to speak to the police without your lawyer present.
Should I take a plea bargain and move on?
Plea bargains are not in the best interest of many people. Even if pleading guilty is your best option, a criminal defense lawyer may be able to fight for a lesser charge or sentence. Invoke your right to legal counsel and allow a lawyer to fight for your freedom.
What If I was coerced into confessing?
This is a far more common scenario than people realize. Police often use questionable tactics to obtain a confession. If you believe you were coerced into confessing, a criminal defense lawyer can help. It’s imperative you contact your lawyer before any plea deal or jury conviction.
