Top Reasons to Hire a Criminal Defense Attorney
A criminal conviction can have serious consequences. If you have been charged with a crime, seek the help of a criminal defense attorney immediately. Although most people want to stay away from seeking legal representation, a criminal defense lawyer by your side can help you lower your penalties and avoid other consequences. Here are some top reasons to hire a criminal defense attorney:
Your attorney can examine the prosecution’s evidence:
Sometimes it is possible that the evidence presented by the prosecution has loopholes. An experienced criminal defense lawyer can find those loopholes and present them to the court.
He/she can help you file your paperwork:
A criminal case requires filling out of necessary paperwork and documents. An attorney can ensure that all your paperwork is filled out correctly. He or she would also ensure that all documents are filed according to the strict deadlines and procedures enforced by the courts.
He/she can help you find expert witnesses:
At some point in your case, you may require the help of expert witnesses to testify on your behalf. An attorney knows how to get in touch with the witnesses and get them on the stand. An expert witness can play a major role in your case.
He/she can help you have your case dismissed or the charges reduced:
Your criminal defense attorney will work hard to have your case either dismissed entirely or the charges reduced.
He/she can help you fight for reduced penalties:
A criminal defense attorney is experienced and knows how to argue for the minimum consequences of your conviction. Whether it is through a negotiated plea bargain or during sentencing after a guilty verdict, your lawyer can fight for reduced penalties, such as little to no jail, through the use of probation or community service.
He/she can protect you against fabricated testimonies:
Sometimes the prosecution may tamper or even destroy evidence in an attempt to get a conviction. A criminal defense attorney can help protect you against such fabricated testimonies and assist you in uncovering the truth.
