Do I need a lawyer for my criminal case?
Even if you are charged with a less serious crime such as a traffic offense, you may greatly benefit from the counsel of a seasoned defense attorney. More severe misdemeanors and felonies require the knowledge of a lawyer who can critique the charges against you and argue to keep you from a conviction.
How should I choose my criminal defense lawyer?
You need to get to know anyone you are considering to represent you. Refrain from attorneys who attempt to pressure you for payment up front. Don’t be afraid to ask tough questions and challenge those who promise you certain results up front. A good attorney will explain your situation and how they can help, but they should not guarantee a specific outcome.
Why do I need a lawyer if I plan to plead guilty?
Representing yourself for a crime is usually not a good idea. A criminal defense lawyer can effectively negotiate with the prosecution for you to receive a lighter sentence or a reduced charge.
What is the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony?
Misdemeanors are crimes for which the prison sentence is 150 days or less. Felonies may receive punishment of three months to life imprisonment or the death penalty.
What is the difference between probation and parole?
Probation is an alternative to prison, while parole is basically a shortened prison sentence. Probation is a sentence allowing the court to suspend jail time in exchange for holding to certain terms. Parole is an option for completing a criminal sentence outside of prison.
What if the alleged victim in my case doesn’t want to press charges? Will my charges be dropped?
It depends. Once the police are involved and the charges are filed, it is no longer up to the person who made the original charge to determine whether your case goes forward or not.
If you have been charged with a crime and have questions or need skilled legal representation, our firm is here to help you. We focus on obtaining the best outcomes possible for our clients.
