yourself as a focus of a criminal investigation can be scary. One of
the most important decisions that can be made at this time is to
retain the services of an attorney to represent your interests
through this process.
the Right Attorney
first thing that must be determined is the type of attorney that is
best suited for the case. The term ‘criminal
law’ covers a large number of offenses.
The possible consequences for breaking a law vary greatly depending
on the type of crime that the defendant is being accused of and the
severity of the offense. There is also a difference if the case is
being prosecuted by the state/county level or the federal level.
There are several different areas that lawyers can concentrate on;
here are a few together with examples.
crime includes offenses such as embezzlement, accounting fraud, and
crime includes armed robbery, assault, and murder.
crime in Mankato, MN refers to possession with intent to deliver and
crimes include rape, sexual assault, and sexual misconduct.
to Have an Attorney
a suspect is arrested, they have the right to be represented by an
attorney. If the defendant is not in the financial position to retain
an attorney, they will be appointed an attorney. This attorney is
called a public defender. There is a misconception that because the
plaintiff is not paying for the attorney that they will not get the
best legal representation. The issue is not that the attorney is not
passionate about the law, or that the case will not be defended
properly. The issue is that they do not have the chance to choose an
attorney that concentrates in the type of charges that they are
facing. For example, an attorney that handles divorce may not be the
best attorney to represent you in an aggravated assault case.
There are several stages of the legal process that you will have to
go through. The role of the attorney will be different at each stage.
If you have pending legal issues, an attorney can be the deciding
factor between your freedom and a prison sentence. If you are charged
