Why Hire A Criminal Defense Attorney?
Criminal law sets forth prohibitions and consequences to penalize those who exhibit certain behaviors and also serves to discourage others from committing those same acts. The punishments associated with violations of criminal laws can be severe and may include fines, probation, incarceration and nearly anything in between.
If you find yourself in the position of being under investigation or prosecuted for a federal or state crime, it is critical to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney. When you are suspect of having committed a crime or have been charged with a crime of any kind, having hired defense lawyers as soon as you are able enhances your ability to keep your freedom and your money. There is no better negotiating tool than putting up a strong defense.
If you suspect there could be an investigation or a warrant for your arrest, your criminal defense lawyer has the ability to make arrangements with the prosecutor and the court on your behalf. This professional skill can mean that you will not have to suffer the indignity of being forcefully arrested at your home or your place of employment. Instead, you could be permitted to simply show up as directed. By having your lawyer assist you in this way, bonds and releases pending resolutions are attainable. You may be permitted to post bond and stay out of jail, depending on the facts of your individual case.
The criminal defense attorneys at Forman Law Group are dedicated to keeping our clients out of jail and avoiding monetary punishment.
