Why Do I Need a Criminal Defense Attorney?

The primary role of a criminal defense attorney is to represent clients and/or organizations who have been accused of criminal misconduct.

Criminal charges can have severe effects on an accused person’s finances, freedom and rights.  Convictions can results in jail time, prison, fines, treatment, loss of driving privileges and gun ownership rights, and property forfeitures.  A dismissal is the goal of every criminal case.  But even when a dismissal is not obtained, there are many more benefits of having an experienced and qualified defense attorney on your side.  A criminal defense attorney may be able to assist a defendant in avoiding or minimizing these negative consequences.  An attorney can also explain the process, ensure that the state follow the proper procedure and recommend the best course to navigate through the case.

Criminal defense is among the most challenging areas of law, and protecting the rights and interests of defendants requires substantial skills, experience and local expertise.
