Prison or jail, probationary sentences, community service requirements, fines – they comprise just some of the unfortunate possibilities of what you’re up against. The District Attorney and the police are able to devote large amounts of time and resources to prosecute and punish you. Most of us simply do not have the ability to adequately defend ourselves against the overwhelming power the State can bring against us in a criminal prosecution.
Hiring a criminal defense attorney to represent you and guide you through the complex legal system may be advised in your case. A criminal defense attorney can help you to avoid or limit an active prison or jail sentence, community service, probationary sentences and monetary fines.
Being charged with a crime is just the first step in the criminal justice system process. Just because you’ve been charged with a misdemeanor does not mean that you are guilty. You have a constitutional right to plead “not guilty” and have a court decide your case. A good criminal defense attorney can help you to identify those winning strategies. We want to construct your best possible defense, because our philosophy is to be as ready and prepared as possible. A “plea bargain,” where a particular charge against you is dismissed or reduced or an agreement is made about sentencing, might be available and could be in your best interest. Bargaining from a position of strength helps make this happen. If you hire me as your criminal defense attorney I will evaluate your case and help you to make the right decision when it comes to trial or plea bargaining.
