Are you facing criminal charges? Hiring the right attorney is imperative, even if you want to plead guilty. You might think that hiring an attorney is pointless. In reality, you need a lawyer for a variety of reasons. First, pleading guilty might not actually be your best option. When you discuss your case with a qualified legal professional, you can have peace of mind knowing that your decision is the best possible choice for your future and your freedom.
Without a lawyer, you might assume that pleading guilty is necessary when it actually isn’t. Imagine that you were arrested for drug possession and charged with the intention to sell. Even if you were in possession of a controlled substance, you might not need to plead guilty to this specific crime. In reality, you might be able to plead your case under a different law. You might be found guilty of simple drug possession instead. A defense lawyer can help you make this determination.
If you appear without an attorney, the prosecution may be less likely to offer you a fair plea bargain. Without a legal professional working for you, the prosecution will assume that you intend to take their first offer. With a criminal defense lawyer, the prosecution will know that you are prepared to negotiate and are unwilling to take an unfair plea bargain. With a skilled attorney on your side, you can rest assured that your plea bargain will be reasonable.
