Whether you’ve been charged with a crime or you’re being investigated for one, it’s important to get legal advice as soon as possible.
HIRE A LAWYER BEFORE YOUR FIRST COURT DATE TO START BUILDING A CASE FROM THE BEGINNING.
Hiring a lawyer before your first court date is a good idea because they’ll have time to review all evidence against you, interview witnesses and gather evidence, build a defense and start building a relationship with the prosecutor. They can also negotiate with the prosecutor for a better deal.
DON’T RELY ON YOUR FAMILY OR FRIENDS FOR LEGAL ADVICE.
You might be tempted to rely on your family or friends for legal advice, but they aren’t always the best people to ask. They may not know the law, or understand how it applies to your situation. In addition, they might be biased and unable to give you an objective opinion about your case. It’s important that you obtain an independent assessment of your situation from an experienced attorney who can explain all of your options clearly and help guide you through the process as smoothly as possible.
You should also remember that although family members offer emotional support during difficult times like these, their role is not meant primarily as a counselor or therapist–it’s supposed to be one where they provide comfort in difficult times rather than offering professional guidance or advice on how best handle one’s legal matters (although some family members do have experience working with attorneys).
ONCE YOU HIRE A LAWYER, YOU WON’T HAVE TO DO ANYTHING.
Once you hire a lawyer, your job is to focus on your family and other responsibilities. Your lawyer will handle everything else. You will have to attend meetings with your lawyer, but they will take care of everything else.
YOUR LAWYER WILL EXPLAIN THE PROCESS TO YOU AND CREATE A STRATEGY FOR SUCCESS.
