Here are a few things you should know if you are facing criminal charges.
Should I Talk To The Police?
Whether you are stopped by police or are under interrogation, you should always think twice before speaking to police. Often, cops will leverage threats, make false promises or even lie to get you to talk. The purpose of police questioning is to gather evidence that can be used against you in court and, despite what they may say, cops are not your friends. Consulting with an attorney before you make any statement is critical.
Why Is It Important To Have A Criminal Defense Lawyer?
Criminal charges are nothing to take lightly. A conviction can jeopardize your career, personal relationships and freedom. Taking immediate action can increase your chances of creating a strong defense to combat the charges.
As your attorney, we will:
- Protect you from self-incrimination
- Explain the law and charges against you
- Communicate with police and prosecutors on your behalf
- Gather evidence and hire expert witnesses
- Fight for reduced charges, sentences and acquittals
Without the guidance of a seasoned lawyer, your case may suffer. With nearly two decades of experience representing over 4,000 clients in criminal cases, we know how to negotiate with confidence and protect your rights in and out of the courtroom.
Can I Afford To Hire An Attorney?
Some people hesitate to contact an attorney because they believe that they cannot afford to hire high-quality representation. However, that is simply not the case. We offer free initial consultations so that money is not a barrier to you learning your options. In addition, we can work with you to set up a payment plan.
You may also save on attorney’s fees if we can successfully reduce your bond. A reduced bond would allow you to pay for our fees using the money that you save and could keep you out of jail.
