Why You Need to Hire an Attorney

For most of us, being arrested is an experience we are not familiar with, so the fear of the unknown and unfamiliar makes the process very stressful and frightening. You may feel that you are at the mercy of the police, prosecutors and judges, and that even the jury will be unsympathetic to your cause. Hiring a knowledgeable and experienced criminal lawyer puts a powerful ally on your side – somebody who knows the law and the process, someone who can let you know what to expect and who will be at your side protecting your rights and looking out for you every step of the way.

As a person accused of a crime, you have many constitutional rights to protect you from unfair treatment. Two of your most important rights are your right to refuse to be interrogated or give statements to the police, and your right to have an attorney assist you in your defense. By talking to an attorney before you talk to the police, you can protect your rights to the fullest extent and preserve your best chances for a positive outcome.
