How can a lawyer help me?
« on: November 11, 2016, 10:56:04 AM »
A lawyer can help you at every stage in the criminal process:

    If you are under investigation, a lawyer can advise you about how to avoid doing things that make it more likely you will be charged, or things that might make it harder to defend the case against you. A proactive approach can often have significant benefits in defending your case.

    If you have already been charged with a crime, a lawyer can help you understand the evidence against you, review the prosecutor’s case, discuss your side of the story, and help you understand how you might be able to fight the charges.

    A lawyer can usually appear in court on your behalf for preliminary appearances, preventing you from missing work or school unnecessarily.

    If you decide to plead guilty, a lawyer can help negotiate with the prosecutor, gather information that helps present you in the best light, explain the circumstances of the incident to the judge, and help get the best possible sentence.
