Hiring an Atlanta Criminal Lawyer
It can sometimes be difficult to know what to do if you are under investigation by law enforcement or are facing criminal charges. You may wonder whether you should involve a lawyer or if the plea bargain the District Attorney's Office has offered is fair. The best advice we can give regardless of your particular legal matter is this: it's better to be safe than sorry. It may sound trite, but in this situation it applies. By taking the initiative and discussing your situation with an attorney, you can find out whether you actually need a criminal lawyer at this stage in the case. You can get information that will help you better understand whether you are at risk of facing criminal charges or if you should not worry about the matter and move on.
Why choose us over a public defender?
An experienced Atlanta criminal lawyer can conduct a complete evaluation of your case to determine the best approach. This applies at any stage of a case, from the initial accusation through to formal charges filed against you and a trial looming in your future. You may also wonder whether to work with a private criminal defense attorney or to request the representation of the Public Defender.
We can offer you two pieces of advice in this regard:
- Not everyone will qualify to work with a state-appointed attorney, particularly if you have a steady or high income.
- A private criminal defense attorney is more likely to have the time and resources to dedicate to your case, as opposed to a Public Defender, who may be overworked and inexperienced. A private attorney will be working for you and you alone.
