Should I Use the Free Public Defender?
When you’re charged with a crime, you find out that you have the right to a lawyer who will work for you for free. This seems like the perfect solution, right?
While it may sound great, it’s not. Public defenders are competent, but the problem is that they are often overworked and underpaid. They may be dealing with dozens of cases at one time and aren’t able to give yours the attention it deserves. They certainly won’t be available to you when you need them, or be able to walk you through the legal process.
Instead, it’s a better idea to hire a Long Beach criminal defense lawyer like Robin D. Perry & Associates.
What a Long Beach Criminal Defense Attorney Can Do for You
When you get in touch with the Law Offices of Robin D. Perry & Associates, they will listen to all the details about your case and gather any evidence like photographs, videos, and witness statements you may have. If you don’t have certain evidence, they will help you collect it so you can strengthen your case.
They will also ask you what happened during your arrest. If there is any evidence of police misconduct, that could get your case thrown out altogether. For instance, if the police failed to read you your Miranda rights, which is your right to remain silent, they didn’t have a valid search warrant, or they didn’t explain that there would be certain consequences if you didn’t comply with drug testing following your arrest, then they may have violated the law. These are just a few examples. Only a skilled Long Beach criminal defense lawyer will be able to point out any misconduct that may have occurred and use it in your favor.
Additionally, your lawyer will negotiate with the prosecutor to either reduce or drop your charges in exchange for a plea deal. Or, they will take your case all the way to trial if necessary. Keep in mind that a majority of cases end in plea deals because it’s less time-consuming and costly than going to court. You could end up having to pay a fine or go to classes instead of being sent away to jail. You never know what’s possible until you get in touch with a lawyer, though.
Why Your Future Is At Stake
When it comes to criminal charges, you need to do everything you can to fight them. By hiring an experienced Long Beach criminal defense attorney, you’ll have a much better chance of getting a favorable outcome.
You don’t just have to worry about prison time or fines; if you have a criminal conviction on your record, you won’t be able to get federal grants and loans to attend college. Landlords might be hesitant to rent to you and employers may not want to hire you. This conviction could have a negative impact on you for the rest of your life.
You need to take your charges, and your future, as seriously as possible, and reach out to a Long Beach criminal defense lawyer right away.
