If you find yourself being changed with a misdemeanor or felony crime, choosing the best criminal defense lawyer to help you resolve your case as best as possible is a top priority. Your attorney should be well informed on the local laws and state laws. This implies that your attorney should have thorough understanding of the legal aspects of criminal defense from all angles. Your attorney must view you case based on the evidence without being concerned with the defendants perspective. At Turnbull we make sure that the defendant has control on how the case proceeds. This means that you have the final decision on how to please, testify at trial or make any other relevant decisions. Rest assured that our attorneys will always advise against any important measures or counter actions that you may not see.
A number of procedures follow after a person has been arrested. After this happens the right prosecutor is handed the case followed by a decision of what charges, if any, will be failed. The prosecutor isn’t restricted to any of the initial decisions, this will depend on the amount of evidence that is received later on as time advances.
You must be well informed and understand your rights as a citizen. Being arrested is not to be taken lightly. Law enforcement have goals of their own and they wont always keep your well being in mind. You have the right to remain silent, the right to speak to an attorney. If for any given reason you chose to give up these rights, what ever you say can be used against you and harm the outcome of your case.
Keeping this in mind, speaking to an attorney will provide you more security and will benefit your case to a better resolution. The amount of evidence law enforcement may have at the time of your arrest is hard to determine. They don’t always speak with the truth and may lie during your interrogation process in order to obtain results in their favor. We are experienced attorneys at Turnbull and know how to corner all these events beforehand.
This is one of the most common questions we get asked during the our initial consultations with a criminal defense attorney. We understand your sense of urgency is typically because of the fact that you have so many legal implications that can harm the future of you and your loved ones, we understand you’re eager to get a full sense of legal protection to make your peace of mind and sense of hope be restored.
