The Importance of Trial Experience in Criminal Defense Cases
The police and prosecutors are not your friends. They have no incentive to help you. Their goal is to obtain a guilty plea or conviction quickly and at minimum expense to the taxpayers and voters. They know you are afraid of the consequences of a criminal arrest, and will use that fear against you. They will try to convince you that the only way to avoid jail is to plead guilty and hope for leniency.
Do not give a statement or plead guilty without first consulting an experienced criminal defense trial lawyer who can and will fight for your rights in court. Knowing that you are represented by an accomplished attorney, they may be more inclined to negotiate a favorable plea.
Regardless, you will have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your rights and freedom are under the protection of a proven trial lawyer who will leave no stone unturned in your defense.
