A criminal lawyer or attorney may not be necessary every time you get into trouble… One day you may get yelled at by your spouse, or next week you could be written up at work for a less than stellar production month.
However, there are times, right or wrong, when you may find yourself entangled with the law. When that happens, especially if it is your first time, you may be asking yourself, “Do I need a criminal lawyer or attorney?”
Here is a quick rule of thumb to answer that question: If you are facing the possibility of jail or prison time, you should never be without a lawyer or attorney.
Whether your charges are true and you have committed the crime, or you have been wrongly accused, having a criminal lawyer or attorney present plays a vital role in protecting your rights as a US citizen. The lawyer, and the lawyer’s team, is there to not only defend your right to freedom, but also to HGH counsel and provide legal advice throughout the process.
If you are being questioned by the law, you have the right to have an attorney present during questioning. It is important because you do not want to incriminate yourself, and ultimately hiring an attorney sooner rather than later, can end up being a lot less costly in the end. Remember that an allegation is simply that… an allegation. You have not been convicted, and you are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
