When Should I Hire a Criminal Defense Attorney?

People often wonder when they should hire a criminal defense attorney, taking the cost of hiring and retaining counsel into consideration. While hiring and retaining representation can be costly, it pales in comparison to the potential cost of your freedom, extensive jail sentences and fines that may occur without experienced attorneys who are advocating for your best interests. A criminal conviction can have lasting financial and negative social implications that individuals don’t tend to consider when they are first charged. Put simply, the sooner that you hire a criminal defense attorney the better, whether you think you are being investigated for a crime or have been officially charged with a crime.

What Are the Benefits of Hiring a Criminal Defense Attorney?

There are several benefits in hiring an attorney to represent you throughout the course of your case. By hiring your criminal defense attorney early, you will have an advocate in your corner from the beginning through the end of your case. In some instances, your defense attorney may even be able to get your case dismissed before any charges are even brought against you. Your attorney can assist in explaining the judicial process to you, identifying the strengths and weaknesses of your case based off of their experience, attending court hearings, and independently investigating your case. Your attorney can help answer and track down answers to questions and provide guidance to you as to when to provide statements relating to your case. They can also negotiate plea deals and act as a mediator. Their experience and judgment can help change the course of your case drastically especially when involved early on in the process.

Dear Sam, I can not thank you enough for your expertise in the handling of Chris's case as well as your sensitivity and caring attitude. toward him. I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. He really expressed how good it felt to be able to talk to you! Sincerely and may God bless you. Pat W.
I really appreciate your prompt and highly effective assistance on this matter. After six different OUI attorneys told me that there was no way to recall the warrant and dismiss the charges against me without me returning to Mass from California, you managed to accomplish what they said was impossible. Thanks again! Neil D., Boston, MA
