Why It’s Vital to Hire a Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you have been charged with a crime, you have the right to hire a criminal defense lawyer to represent you. Although you may be reluctant to spend money on a legal advocate, understand that a criminal defense attorney may help you avoid a permanent criminal record as well hefty fines, jail time, a damaged reputation, and a difficult future.

An experienced criminal defense lawyer has a thorough understanding of your rights outlined in the United States Constitution and can help ensure you are not being taken advantage of during a criminal investigation and trial. With a criminal defense lawyer by your side, you’ll be able to understand the possible punishments for your crime as well as possible defenses that may reduce those penalties.

When you make the decision to hire a criminal defense lawyer, you can expect them to argue your case in court and negotiate with the prosecutor on your behalf. Their professional support will significantly increase your chances of getting your charges reduced or case dismissed.

Questions to Ask When Hiring a Defense Attorney

Fortunately, most criminal defense attorneys offer a free initial consultation to prospective clients. By taking advantage a free consultation, you can take the time to find out how an attorney’s knowledge and experience will be most beneficial to your case. The questions listed below will help you select an attorney that is the most fitting for your particular situation.

  • How long have you practiced criminal law? Since criminal law is constantly evolving, you need an attorney who has a great deal of experience handling criminal cases and stays up-to-date on the law and criminal defense strategies.
  • How much of your practice is criminal law? Some attorneys refer to themselves as criminal defense attorneys yet only handle a few criminal cases each year. You should look for someone who devotes all or the majority of their practice to criminal defense.
  • How many juries have you handled? In some criminal cases, a trial is necessary. If this is the reality for your case, you’ll want to ensure the attorney you hire is experienced with jury trials.
  • How will you handle my case? It’s crucial for you to gain an understanding of how the attorney plans to conquer your case. Find out how they will investigate your case and what possible outcomes you can expect.
  • Are you a local attorney? Local attorneys are most familiar with local judges, prosecutors, and police. They are more likely to negotiate a favorable plea agreement or manage a local trial well.
  • Are you the attorney who will be managing my case? At some law firms, especially larger ones, senior attorneys will provide the consultation and pass your case on to a junior, less-experienced attorney.
  • How much will your services cost? You should choose an attorney that is upfront about their pricing structure and how much you will owe. Be sure to hire an attorney who is the most qualified to handle your case rather than the one that is the least expensive.

Alright! These guys are amazing. I was devastated when I got a three tickets in New Jersey with 12 points in total and fines adding up over $1K. The officer was truly rude, unfair and just took out his bad day on me. At this point I had no idea what to do but I must find some legal help to fight this in court. After getting the tickets, I called a bunch of different law groups trying to see who can help me with this. I was able to talk to many of them and mostly all of them seemed like they wanted to see how much they can get out of me before even hearing out what my concerns where. Then I got around to calling Bhatt Law Group and I was welcome by this lady (whose name I don't know) and she was amazing. She listened and helped me be calm and gave me assurance I am in good hands. She offer pricing and it seemed very reasonable too. I made my payment and then I didn't have anything to worry about till the day of the virtual court. They figured out all my court dates and managed everything on the back end. They would give me updates on what the process is up to. Funny story, on the day of my virtual court session I overslept thinking my court time was at 11 am instead of 9 am and I had my attorney Devin Baer even giving me a call to get me out of bed to attend the zoom. I don't know how many attorneys would do that for their client. Devin was very helpful, professional and understanding. He gave me a call prior to my court session and gave important pointers and even through out the court session he made me feel confident and assure that everything will be okay. So these guys were friendly, helpful and professional but where there any results? OH YEAH! I was able to lower my fines and points to barely nothing. These guys are life savers and will help you legally in any situation where you have been treated unfairly. Thank you Bhatt Law.
