If you were charged with a crime and need representation in your court case, a criminal defense attorney is for you. There are many aspects that a good defense attorney will be able to help you with, which goes above and beyond just arguing your case in court. From arrest to your verdict, we will help you – and now you can find out how.

How a Defense Attorney Can Help You 

Giving the Best Advice: Before you even enter the courtroom for the first time, a case is being made against you because you are suspected of committing a crime. This means that, everything you do, can and will be used against you. Without your attorney present, you should never speak to anybody because they have experience dictating what could help you and what could hurt you. Don’t let a case be made against you without your attorney’s help. 

Negotiations: Many criminal cases get settled outside of trial through negotiations. The defense may bring something to light before the case even hits a courtroom that helps you win your case right there. Maybe there was no probable cause for an arrest to be made in the first place. All of these aspects are considered when making these decisions. 

Plea Bargains: If the evidence in your case is strong and you believe you will be receiving a long sentence, you may be able to work with your attorney to receive a plea bargain. These can be rare in certain cases; however, having a helpful and experienced attorney on your side who understands plea bargains in and out can help you every step of the way in the process.

Arguing Your Case: Arguing your case is best understood when a defense attorney understands the strengths and weaknesses in your case. Trying to navigate these laws on your own can be complex and tedious, which is why you need us on your side.

Why it Pays to Have a Private Defense Attorney 

Lastly, having a private defense attorney definitely has its upsides. Sure, a public defender can look good in some ways; however, they tend to be overworked and underpaid and may not be able to handle the volume of cases thrown at them. A private attorney will put dedication into your case from all aspects. We can help you understand what you may be facing and help you get the best outcome.
