Top 3 Reasons to Hire a Criminal Defense Attorney

Posted on in Criminal Law

top reasons to hire an attorney, joliet criminal defense lawyerIf you have been charged with a crime, a criminal defense attorney can challenge evidence and effectively negotiate with prosecutors. However, if negotiating is not in your best interests, the lawyer has the option to present the case to a judge or jury to prove your innocence. It is important to take precautionary measures with dealing with a criminal charge. You could have a public defender handle your case, but if the charges are serious enough, hiring an experienced attorney can be better for your future.

1. A criminal defense lawyer can provide an in-depth analysis of your case.

You and your criminal attorney can sit down and speak privately about your case. At that time, you will be able to discuss and review the prosecutor’s evidence. Your attorney will then investigate the allegations and give you an honest and confidential review of your situation.

2. A criminal defense lawyer has the knowledge specific to this area of law.

An experienced criminal attorney will always be up-to-date on the latest legal findings and have the advantage of years of experience. Instead of working on your own, your attorney can help you determine through first-hand knowledge what you should do when facing a criminal charge.

3. A skilled criminal defense lawyer can help get your case dismissed or charges reduced.

Your criminal defense attorney can implement different tactics to get evidence excluded, if applicable, or other defense methods, for any of the following crimes:

  • Drug crimes, such as heroin possession or distribution
  • Sex crimes, such as sexual assault and indecent exposure
  • Computer crimes, such as child pornography and Internet solicitation of a minor
  • DUI charges
  • Traffic offenses, such as aggravated speeding or driving on a suspended license
  • Theft, such as shoplifting, theft, burglary and robbery
  • Domestic violence, such as orders of protection or abuse
