Will my case go to trial?
Not all criminal cases go to trial. In fact, many are resolved through plea deals or even dismissed by the prosecutor. A defense attorney can better help you figure out the course of your case if it can be resolved in a plea deal or does have to go to court.
What should I say to the police?
Nothing! While it’s important to cooperate with the police (such as taking a required urine or breath test at a DWI stop), you should not say anything to the police, because they might use your own words to incriminate you later if you confess. Before speaking to the police, first consult your lawyer about what you should and should not say.
Should I use my Miranda Rights if I'm arrested?
Yes. You should always exercise your right to remain silent, because law enforcement may ask incriminating questions to use your own words against you.
Do I need an attorney if I am innocent?It is always a good idea to hire an attorney to resolve your case, especially if you are innocent. The stakes are much higher when you have been wrongfully accused, and only an experienced and skilled defense lawyer will know how to get you out of your wrongful charge and gather the evidence to prove it. After all, no one wants to be sitting in jail for something they didn’t do, and our firm is particularly passionate about achieving justice for the innocent.
