Top Reasons Why You Need a Criminal Defense Attorney
As stated above, if there is one time that you absolutely need a lawyer, it is when you are facing criminal charges. Top reasons you need a criminal defense lawyer are:
- The system isn’t always fair. While the criminal defense system is designed to be fair and just, it doesn’t always operate this way. The case may be unfairly stacked against you, and there is a possibility that your Constitutional rights will be breached. By working with an attorney, there is a much greater chance that things will proceed justly.
- The consequences can be severe. If you are convicted of the crime with which you’ve been charged, you may be looking at jail time, large fines, community service, and a black mark on your criminal record. By working with an attorney, you may be able to avoid a conviction or the most severe of sentencing.
- The law can be complex. If you’re not an attorney yourself, you may be unfamiliar with the laws surrounding your case, the potential penalties, your rights, the defenses available to you, how to negotiate a plea deal, and numerous other elements of the law and the criminal process.
