Make sure you have the right defense against criminal charges

If you commit a crime or are accused of committing a crime, you may be arrested and be taken to the police station. At that point, you may have to answer questions about who you are and where you live. Some of those questions are reasonable, and you have no reason to worry. However, if the police want to interrogate you or interview you, it's time to call your attorney.

Defense attorneys have the job of protecting people who are in situations like yours. They're there to help you defend your rights as well as to help reduce the charges and penalties you may face.

Why is it important to work with an attorney if you're accused of a crime?

It's important that you work with an attorney, because they will help you protect yourself against unfair treatment. They will make sure your rights are not violated and that you're treated appropriately by the authorities.

Your defense attorney has other jobs, too. For instance, they'll help you understand the process of a trial and what you can do to help yourself if you end up in court. They may suggest ways to dress or ways to change your appearance to make a better impression on the judge and others involved in the case, for example.

Your attorney has a history of working with people in situations like yours, so relying on their knowledge and education is essential. Attorneys know other attorneys, judges and prosecutors, so they can give you a better idea of where you stand.

Will your attorney encourage a plea deal?

If a plea deal is the right choice for your case, your attorney may help negotiate a deal for you and suggest that you take it. However, it is up to you to decide if the plea deal that has been suggested is right for you. If you decide not to take it, your attorney will help you take your case to trial, where you can argue your side of the story and work toward walking away without a conviction.

If you do face a conviction, your attorney can also seek out alternative sentences. For example, someone with DWI charges may do better in the future if they go through a substance abuse program instead of going to prison. This is something that your attorney can talk to you about if it's an option for your case.
