Criminal Attorney



1. You will need to have a criminal attorney when faced with criminal charges.

True
People who have been recently arrested are advised to contact or talk with a criminal lawyer as soon as they possibly can. The more immediately an accused person can speak with a professional, the better this person's chances are of getting a release arranged in an expedient manor.


2. Trying to find the right criminal lawyer, quickly, may feel overwhelming.

True
Trying to locate the right person in a timely manor can be frustrating and overwhelming. Decisions about the best professional for your individual case can add stress to an already taxing situation. The priority should be to obtain a criminal lawyer as soon as possible because of the need to get information about the potential case to come and to understand the depth of the charges.


3. Criminal lawyers are expensive and difficult to hire.

False
A private criminal defense lawyer can be very expensive. But, fortunately, the U. S. Constitution mandates that a criminal defendant must receive criminal defense. This will allow the court to appoint a criminal attorney to represent any defendant that cannot afford to hire a professional on their own. The court appointed person works for free or for a fee that the defendant can afford. Therefore, everyone in our system is protected appropriately.


4. Court appointed criminal defense attorneys may only question witnesses.

False
Criminal defense lawyers can do much more than question witnesses in the courtroom. They can negotiate with prosecutors for reduced charges, can understand the consequences of a guilty plea and advise accordingly, and can help with structuring a sentence to fit the client's specific needs.


5. If a person goes to prison or jail, God forgets about them.

False
Matthew 25:44-45 - Then shall they answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee in hunger or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister to thee: Then shall he answer them, saying, verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
