Have you been charged with a crime and are unsure if you should hire an attorney, accept a public defender, or represent yourself? In this article we will explore the reasons why you absolutely need to hire a criminal defense attorney for your case.
It is important to realize your criminal record will follow you the rest of your life. In some cases, hiring a lawyer can help you to prevent having convictions on your record and avoid jail time. At the Law Office of Lanease Fuller we provide free consultations so that you can get legal advice for your specific case with no obligation to us.
One of the benefits of finding early representation is having someone on your side who knows the legal process, and can better protect you. Immediately after being arrested, a criminal defense attorney may be able to negotiate a dismissal before any formal charges are made against you. They can also negotiate other rights in your name, which will help improve your chances of having a more positive outcome. Negotiation is more likely to happen in the early stages of a case before charges are finalized, and a criminal defense attorney will know how to bargain for these rights immediately after your arrest.
In addition, having a criminal defense attorney is the best decision for your case because you have an experienced spokesperson who can mediate between you and the other party. In many cases, tempers can get out of control on either side of the party. A criminal defense lawyer will act as a professional representative who can calmly argue on your behalf. Understandably in a criminal defense case, the accused person might become upset or say things that will hurt their case. Attorney representation will minimize the negative effects this may have in court.
Talking to an attorney is an essential step if you have been arrested. Most will provide free consultations so that you can find out the details and implications of your case before making a decision. It is always best to make sure you have researched all your options and know what your legal rights are in order to protect yourself. An attorney will help you understand all your legal options, as well as provide you with insights on what your best step is. They have your best interest at heart and will protect you.
These are the reasons why you absolutely need to hire a criminal defense attorney for your case. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment to review your criminal case.
