Why Hire a Criminal Defense Attorney
It’s a serious matter to be charged with a crime. From speeding to murder, once you are charged with a crime there are immediate repercussions for you and your family. Everything from your finances to your freedom can be affected and you need someone experienced on your side to help you protect your rights guide you through that process.
Criminal charges carry with them what are called “collateral consequences,” which are all of the unforeseen things that go along with an arrest or citation. Posting bond, loss of employment, or temporary loss of license can all be a side effect of being arrested, much less convicted.
The criminal court process can be complex and you need an experienced attorney to help navigate that mine field and focus on getting the best result for your case.

How Can a Criminal Defense Lawyer Help Me and My Case?
The criminal procedure process can be complex and can deal with many specialized issues of law. Having an experienced attorney can help through that process. From bond hearings, to probable cause and indictments, to preparation of the actual trial, the criminal process is a lengthy and nuanced area of practice.
Having an attorney with experience in this field is crucial to successfully defending your case while maintaining the stresses that come with being charged with a crime. Not only do you have to deal with the upheaval in your own life, defending yourself in court adds all of the legal pressures of the case onto your shoulders as well. Your criminal defense attorney will build your case with interviews, research, and other methods of collecting information that exposes the strengths and weaknesses of your matter.
The evidence against you needs to be scrutinized by an experienced professional that can leverage additional resources to determine any legal theories to be explored on your behalf. The potential of your being acquitted of the crime or getting the right plea for your case increases dramatically with a criminal defense attorney skilled in negotiating your case with opposing counsel.
If your case does go to trial, we will participate in your defense by helping with jury selection, presenting arguments, examining witnesses, and persuading the jury that the prosecution’s case against you does not meet the required burden of proof.
