Why do I need a Criminal Defense attorney?
Criminal law is extremely complex. The majority of crimes are state crimes, and each state usually sets its own parameters and punishments. Federal offenses are typically much more complicated than state offenses and the processes and rights one has are markedly different than crimes committed at the state level.
The average person has little knowledge of the law and the processes surrounding criminal defense. When facing the prospects of jail or prison, you should never be without an attorney. Many people, after being charged with a crime, feel as though they are presumed guilty. This is not the case! In fact, you are presumed innocent, a presumption that will stay with you unless your guilt is proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
