Why An Attorney? Do I Really Need One...

Absolutely! If you are charged with a crime, you need a good trial lawyer. There are many important aspects of your criminal case by which you can be crippled by attempting to handle the case by yourself without a good trial lawyer.

The first aspect by which you are limited is your ability to negotiate. The reason why a prosecutor won't negotiate with you is that you simply don't possess the credibility to sit down with an adverse lawyer and discuss the merits of how your case will be viewed by a judge or jury. The prosecutor knows that you don't know what you are doing. The prosecutor is not going to haggle over legal issues with a non-lawyer, let alone the accused defendant. You don't have the respect that is earned by the fact that you can go to trial and win.

The second aspect by which you are severely limited when you aren't represented by a good trial lawyer is the ability to effectively present your case and prevail at trial. If you want to win at trial, you need a good trial lawyer. All the evidence in your favor does little good if you can't get it admitted. Attempting to try a criminal case where your freedom is at stake without a good trial lawyer may end very badly for you.

There are so many facets of a criminal case with which a good trial lawyer can help you. When you, or someone you love, is facing criminal charges it is also of great value to have the peace of mind that your case, or your loved one's case, is being handled by an experienced professional who can achieve the best possible result.
