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.
