Why do you need a criminal defense attorney?

Criminal Defense

Your lawyer understands that you could be facing collateral consequences and monetary penalties that could have far-reaching and long-lasting effects for you and your loved ones. A charge that appears on your record, no matter how small, can hinder your ability to find employment, continue your professional licensing process, find a place to live, or even receive a loan or other benefits. That is why it’s so important that you find the best legal representation as soon as possible and start planning your legal defense right away.

What will your criminal defense attorney do for you?

To begin with, your lawyer will start by researching the facts, investigating the case against you and, if possible, try to negotiate a favorable deal with the prosecutor. In the best case scenario, this could mean a negotiated dismissal without the dangers of “diversion” programs and their burdensome punishments. 

Your lawyer can also negotiate for reduced bail, lifting of no contact orders, lower charges, and minimum sentences. You may be surprised to discover that, due to different factors such as political and public pressure, the fact that jails are overcrowded, and court calendars also tend to be overcrowded, the possibility of making a deal has become more attainable and has therefore turned into an essential tool for the unclogging of the criminal defense system. This may work in your favor.

Additionally, your lawyer can interview witnesses examine their testimonies, help you assess potential defenses and even file motions to suppress evidence illegally obtained by the police and/or move for dismissal. You may even decide to go to trial after your legal team has been able to analyze the prosecutor’s case. You are in good hands with a Destin criminal defense attorney.
