The right to a legal defense is a fundamental part of your constitutional freedoms. A lawyer helps ensure that you are treated fairly by the legal system, regardless of the offense you have been charged with.
Reasons to Hire an Attorney
There are several reasons why you should hire an experienced lawyer whenever you've been charged with a crime.
Just because you are arrested does not mean you will be convicted. The police have a protocol they must follow. If they do not, it is possible some evidence could be suppressed. This could lead to dismissal.
Another reason you should hire a lawyer is that the State Attorney may charge you with several crimes that arise out of one event. An experienced lawyer will do their best to get these charges reduced or dismissed.
You should hire a lawyer if you are charged with a crime to ensure that you get the best possible result. While you may be guilty, there may be reasons to mitigate your fines and/or jail time. You may be able to enter a program that could keep your charge off your criminal record.
