A criminal attorney brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to your case. Some people don’t fully understand everything we do.
Defense attorneys can specialize in particular areas of criminal law. For example, maybe you need a DUI lawyer to fight a DUI charge or to reduce the possible penalties that you face. Often, the defense attorney is familiar with the prosecutor, so they might be able to get concessions.
Also, an experienced attorney will most likely have handled other cases that are similar to yours, so we know your options. We can also identify particular issues that you will need to prepare for, such as motions that might help you.
It is important to have an attorney who understands the state and local laws, as well as the local court system where you have been charged. This prevents surprises that might come from an unknown prosecutor or judge, obscure laws or unfamiliar regulations.
Some people opt for a public defender. Public defenders are usually reserved for people who don’t have the money to afford a private attorney. However, it is important to understand that a public defender is simply not going to have a lot of time to work on your case, and their resources might be limited.
A good defense attorney will have excellent communication skills, so he can argue your case effectively. And he will also possess a knack for negotiating. He will be tenacious, determined and will not back down from a fight.
Gerald Schwab can help if you need that kind of criminal defense attorney. Whatever charges you might be facing, he will work to get you the best possible outcome. If you need a DUI lawyer, give us a call.
