Do You Need a Criminal Attorney?
When accused of any crime, whether small or more complex, it's a daunting
experience. Maybe you are guilty or maybe you had no idea, either way you
need to secure the best legal representation to clear your name and enable
you to get on with your life as quickly as possible.
Before you stat looking around for a lawyer to assist you, it's advisable to
know what a criminal attorney does, so you know whether they are the right
match for you and will provide you with the complete service you need from
when you are frst taken in for questioning through to the fnal resolution.
A criminal attorney defends individuals and companies who have been
charged with a criminal activity. Tis can be anything from domestic violence
to fraud and robbery to driving under the infuence, immigration disputes,
child molestation and so much more. It's advisable to discuss your case with
the criminal attorneys in your local area to identify if they can handle the case
and how they will proceed.
A criminal attorney will handle issues that relate your your arrest. Maybe you
weren't dealt with properly. Maybe the police ofcer didn't read you your
rights when they picked you up for questioning. Whatever the case, it's
advisable to ask for a lawyer to be present during questioning and then get
hold of your criminal attorney, so that they can ensure your arrest is handled
properly by the book.
What many people don't realize is that every step of the process is recorded
and logged for the court room, therefore hiring a criminal attorney in the
very early stages before you are actually arrested is the best option, ensuring
you don't do or say anything that can harm your case moving forward.
Other ways these attorneys assist you is that they assist with criminal
investigations, criminal charges and sentencing appeals. Tey know the
process that needs to be taken in terms of your arrest, documentation to be
submitted, evidence and questioning witnesses and more. Tey will put the
process in motion, ensuring that they tick all the boxes in terms of how they
need to proceed so your case is carried out correctly, which can be in your
favor when sentencing is ruled.
Tere is always a prettrial document process that must be followed and there
are set deadlines and certain documentation that needs to be submitted
before the case goes to court. It's essential that the criminal attorney you
choose follows this process to the letter, one document not submitted or
completed incorrectly can delay or even hinder your case.
Te good news is that not all cases make it to trial and if this is your frst
offense and based on the offense you are being charged with, you may be one
of the lucky ones where your criminal attorney can secure a resolution
outside the court room. In some instances you may fnd these agreements are
more welcoming that the fnal sentencing of a court room, so if you can try
and secure an out of court resolution with the prosecution, which is
something your attorney should be aiming for.
In the event the case does go to trial, you want peace of mind that your
criminal attorney has extensive experience in the court room and is able to
provide you with the quality representation that you need from winning
opening and closing statements to questioning witnesses and more.
Remember to always choose a criminal attorney you feel most comfortable
with. Look at their track record and their experience working with cases that
are similar to yours before making a fnal decision.
