If you are facing criminal charges, your reputation, freedom, and future may be at stake. Criminal defense attorneys may be able to help if you’re facing:
- Drug possession charges
- Check fraud charges
- Burglary charges
- Assault charges
- And many more criminal charges
Once you connect with a criminal defense attorney, you can learn more about the specific charges against you, the laws in your state, and how to best move forward. A defense attorney may find flaws in the investigation, suggest specific defense strategies, or may be able to arrange a plea bargain. He or she could even get a complete dismissal of the charges.
The Criminal Court Process
The criminal defense process may be difficult and confusing, especially for someone unfamiliar with the law. Depending on the type of crime you are accused of, the amount of evidence, and local laws, the process could take a few weeks or could be drawn out over several years. Often, this includes interviews with police, booking, bail hearing, jury trial, and, if necessary, sentencing and appeals. There are important legal implications every step of the way, and by working with an attorney you can help protect your rights at every step.
