The Types Of Charges That Require Representation From An Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney
A criminal charge can be one of the most deviating things that anyone can have to go through. Not only does a person facing a charge have to deal with with the immediate ramifications, but may also have lifelong challenges that can make it hard to secure a job or housing. A criminal defense lawyer can help a person navigate the tricky waters of a criminal charge, and assist them to make sense of the court proceedings that follow. Here are just a few of the many accusations that a lawyer can defend against, and bring peace of mind.
A misdemeanor, whether substantiated or not, can be frustrating. The most common misdemeanor offenses include petty theft, public intoxication, or trespassing. While the charge itself may not seem that severe, a conviction could lead to a criminal record that will follow the accused individual for the rest of their life. Hiring an attorney to help with court proceedings will provide backup if the charged person has to speak in court or during the bargaining stages of the sentencing procedure.
Felony charges are much more severe, and the impact it can have can cause an entire family to be ripped apart. The most common felony charges include drug abuse, larceny, and arson. Even though a person will have the opportunity to select a public defender to represent them, many choose to hire a private criminal defense attorney in the hopes of having a more positive outcome.
DUI and DWI
A DUI or DWI charge is not only one that can lead to excess expense, but it can also leave a person without their driver's license or employment. Be sure to hire an attorney so the ramifications of the charge can be mitigated, and the fines and fees can be reduced. A prosecutor will know how to navigate the legal system and will work to get their client past the charge so they can look forward to the future.
