What a Criminal Law Attorney Brings to the Table in your Defense
By Adam Peer - Owner of The Law Office of Adam Peer, LLC
When charges are filed against you, it is prudent to hire an attorney. It can be reassuring to know that you have an experienced criminal law attorney in your corner, someone who is qualified and ready to fight for you, whether or not you are guilty. This article seeks to highlight some of the things a qualified criminal law attorney can bring to the table in your defense.
Prompt Advice and Legal Counsel Before or Directly After Arrest
Contacting an attorney before you have been questioned, if you are under investigation or have been PFI’d (pending further investigation), is the best way to proceed when possible. If this is not possible, it is advisable to contact your attorney immediately when you are arrested or charged and not to answer any questions outside the presence of your attorney. Your criminal lawyer can advise you, protect you and guide the conversation if you end up submitting to interrogation.
A Familiarity with the Justice System
Criminal defense lawyers within your state will be well acquainted with the state’s law and therefore, can best understand how to navigate, prepare, and present your case in court. If your lawyer is experienced, he or she will have worked within the system for years, will understand and be able to test the State’s case, find loopholes in the law when they are there, and be able to exploit the weaknesses in the State’s case to your benefit.
An experienced criminal law attorney can contest the charges filed against you and begin to build your case right from the start. In protecting your interests and fighting for you, he will set in to feeling out the prosecution, reviewing the State’s discovery file with a keen and skilled eye, speaking to potential witnesses, and ultimately evaluating the totality of your case in determining whether the prosecution has a case or not. The result of this analysis will guide the hand of a good criminal law attorney and light the way to best protecting your freedom.
Hiring an attorney as soon as you know you are in trouble will allow your attorney the best opportunity to effectively fight your case. Call Adam Peer today.
