Anyone facing a criminal charge might feel like they are facing an uphill battle. While it is true that building a defense is often rather difficult, all defendants should understand that they have a right to present a defense to the charges against them. We can help defendants look into the options that might help them resolve their case.
When you are charged with any crime, you need to invoke your Sixth Amendment rights immediately. This means that you should make it clear that you want an attorney with you throughout the criminal justice proceedings. The Sixth Amendment grants you the right to have counsel with you while you are being interrogated and during all court proceedings. It is vital that you speak up as early in the process as possible so that we can help you ensure that your rights, including the right to avoid self-incrimination, are protected.
We understand that you might be confused or upset by what is going on when you find out about criminal charges against you. We can work to help you ensure that all of your rights are protected when you are dealing with law enforcement. We can also help you learn about the charges you face, the penalties if you are convicted and the options you have for your defense.
You don't have to try to navigate the waters of the criminal justice system on your own. Instead, we can stand by your side to help ensure that all of the legal rights you have are respected. We can also help you to determine if plea bargains and other resolutions might be possible for your case.
