Why Should You Hire a Criminal Defense Attorney?

By David M. Wallin   Nov. 16, 2010 3:50p

If you are under investigation or if you have been charged with a criminal offense, regardless if it is a misdemeanor or a felony, you should immediately seek representation from a Palmdale criminal defense attorney. At this critical time, the worst mistake you can make would be to speak to law enforcement before securing a Palmdale criminal defense attorney who is invested in protecting your rights.

If you have been charged with a crime, you cannot afford to leave your fate in the hands of the prosecution. Innocent people are accused of crimes every day and some are even wrongfully imprisoned. Law enforcement has a wealth of funds and resources at their disposal when aggressively seeking a conviction. In the event that you are convicted of a crime, you could face jail time, prison sentencing, hefty fines, restitution, community service, probation or parole and a permanent criminal record that will certainly haunt you for the rest of your life.

How Can Hiring an Attorney Help You?

When you are being questioned by detectives, district attorneys, the prosecution and judges who are well versed in every aspect of the law, having a Palmdale criminal defense lawyer by your side every step of the way can protect you from unfair sentencing. Additionally, having an attorney who is also skilled and knowledgeable in the laws and your criminal rights will give you the advantage you need in order to secure a better outcome for your case.
