The Importance of Retaining Your Own Lawyer Right Away
If you wait for the court to assign you a legal aid attorney or public defender, you may end up significantly decreasing your chances of a positive outcome. In most cases, you will not actually appear in court or meet the public defender until weeks after you receive the desk appearance ticket. By that time, important evidence in your favor may have disappeared. Make sure you contact a criminal defense attorney sooner, rather than later.
You need someone who can take swift action on your behalf to:
- Obtain copies of any videos of the alleged crime scene
- Interview any witnesses to the alleged crime
- Carefully and thoroughly review your case and prepare a strong defense
- Offer the one-on-one attention you deserve
