Two Reasons For A Criminal Defense Attorney

There are many reasons why a criminal defense attorney or DUI attorney can help when you’re facing charges, whether from a DUI or some other alleged criminal act. The fact of the matter is you deserve to have competent legal help to represent your side of the case and work toward the best possible outcome for you.

1) A Better Outcome

Criminal Law is complex, and DUI laws have become more severe over the years. People who try to defend themselves don’t always know what will help or harm their case. For some people, a DUI case seems like an automatic loss, and they are convinced they will “have the book thrown at them.”

A DUI charge can bring an assumption of guilt from some people. However, the reality is that an attorney can definitely produce a better outcome for clients. Through negotiation, investigations, and questioning of potential witnesses, the attorney might be able to reduce jail time or eliminate it altogether.

An attorney might be able to get fees reduced or even get the charges thrown out completely. Despite what people think, such things do happen, and a defense attorney will know what evidence, legal motions or negotiations can best affect the outcome.

2) Less Stress

Facing the courts can be incredibly stressful. A client doesn’t know what the future holds, how it will affect his or her life, or what statements, comments or decisions will negatively impact the outcome of the trial. Standing before the judge can be intimidating, and dealing with the prosecutor can be frustrating.

The legal wrangling, the long drawn-out procedures and the feeling of being ganged up on can all make for an incredibly difficult time. A defense attorney helps by providing encouragement, good advice, explanations for each step of the process, and someone to listen to your side of the story.

Remember, it is the defense attorney’s job to get the best possible outcome for his client. Having someone on your side, someone who understands the complexities and criminal law and is dedicated to helping you should provide peace of mind.
