Why Is It Important To Hire An Attorney In An Assault Case?
Are People Worried Or Afraid To Hire An Attorney? Can They Do It On Their Own?
No. You can’t do it on your own, you’re dealing with a professional prosecutor who knows the rules of the court, the laws, the system, how to admit evidence, how to prove you guilty, and how to hire experts who can prove you guilty.
Moreover, every word you say is an admission that can be used against you. What you consider the truth is not what the court considers the truth. You may think that you can talk your way, which is one of the worst things you can do. You have a right against self-incrimination. The more you talk, the more you can actually make the case. The police may lack enough evidence to convict you, but you may be able to make their case for them by talking.
If you hire a lawyer, it does not make you look guilty. You look smart, and you look like someone who cares about their constitutional rights. People have died for and fought for the right for you to have the right to an attorney. It’s a very important weight because you should have the same professional expertise as the government does.
In addition to defending you from the charges and knowing how to win the case, an attorney is going to be familiar with the prosecutors and the courts. When you have a case that isn’t winnable, knowing what other aspects of a plea there are that can get you out of trouble, such as pretrial intervention or other diversionary programs, and examining the reasons that got you in trouble are important.
Maybe you have a drug problem and Drug court is the right vehicle for you. Having concerns about whether you should hire an attorney for a criminal matter that could put you in prison, subject you to hundreds of thousands in fines and give you a criminal record where you’d never be able to get a job again is like trying to do heart surgery on yourself.
