Do I Really Need a Criminal Defense Lawyer?
Jan. 15, 2023
When we talk, the question is not whether you're innocent or guilty. Rather, the questions arise after investigating and reviewing the facts as they relate to the charges against you:
1. Are there facts that will inhibit the government from proving your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt (proven by aggressive cross-examination of the government witnesses)?
2. Are there facts that, when presented as your defense, will prove you are innocent OR will demonstrate the government is unable to prove you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt?
It sounds simple and television makes it look easy, but the fact is you need a diligent lawyer who will LISTEN to you and determine what facts are relevant to provide the best possible defense or plea.
The consequences of an arrest or conviction aren't always short; they can follow you throughout your personal and professional life for years to come. Depending on the circumstances, you could face fines, community service, the suspension or revocation of your driver's license, probation, drug or alcohol treatment, and time in jail or prison. I will use my experience and knowledge of the laws and area courts to protect your rights.
