How can a defense lawyer help me?
A defense lawyer can help initially by answering any questions you may have and by reviewing your particular situation. It is impossible to say whether you need legal representation and what you are up against without reviewing your case and charges, and an experienced lawyer can do this. If you decide to work with a lawyer, he or she can then begin protecting your rights immediately. This will include advising you regarding your case and essentially acting as your voice and representation through all criminal proceedings. This includes conducting independent investigations and working with expert witnesses in the field to build a strong defense strategy on your behalf.
