​Just some of the reasons why you need a Criminal Defense attorney

7 January, 2016

  1. It just got serious!!! When you have been charged with even a minor criminal act the government is out to brand you a criminal and possibly send you to jail or prison! An attorney can help prevent this!
  2. There is no hiding from big brother any more. With the internet and today’s continual automation of information no one is going to have a problem finding out about your criminal case. Even municipal courts are getting on line and many are already searchable for free. What employer is going to hire someone with a record if they can hire someone without one?
  3. The prosecutor is not going to listen to you tell your side of the story. There are ethical reasons why they will not speak to you. Also there is the fact they are busy and many simply don’t want too. They will speak to an attorney. An attorney can present your side of the story and argue the law with the prosecutor. The prosecutor also knows that a lawyer will know how to make the defense case in court!
  4. Evidence, Evidence, Evidence!!! If you don’t know how to preserve it, have it collected, disclose it, and present it in Court it doesn’t come in… So those witnesses that you were out of state when the crime happened are not going to testify. The fact that the State’s witness hates you and has made up lies about you before well the jury will not hear…
