Why You Always Need an Attorney When Facing Criminal Charges

Facing criminal charges is one of the most overwhelming, scary, and uncertain experiences a person can go through. With everything from your freedom to reputation on the line, you should never take a charge — whether misdemeanor or felony — lightly.

Regardless of how much work you believe you can do yourself, the criminal justice system makes it virtually impossible for people to adequately represent themselves. With so much on the line, it’s always best to put your trust in an experienced attorney.

Why You Should Hire a Defense Attorney

1. They understand the criminal justice system.

No one understands the intricacies of the criminal justice system better than a defense lawyer. Even if you’ve been through the system before or believe you have a strong understanding of how everything works, the nature of criminal cases is incredibly complicated. At Marsala Law Group, we take pride in the fact that we walk our clients through every step of the process, explaining what they can expect and answering any questions.

2. Defense attorneys have a relationship with other prosecutors.

While it may be easy to assume that defense attorneys and prosecutors are strict adversaries, they actually work together quite often. If your attorney has a positive relationship with other prosecutors, it can dramatically improve the chances of you receiving a more favorable result.

3. They can manage expectations.

Everyone who works on our team genuinely cares about their clients. Therefore, we never want clients to feel blindsided by an unexpected outcome. After reviewing the details of a client’s case, we’ll discuss the potential outcomes they could face before working tirelessly to help them receive a favorable outcome.

4. They have years of experience with similar cases.

Our Marsala Law Group criminal attorneys have over 20 years of combined experience in the justice system. With a strong focus on criminal law, we have years of experience handling cases ranging from first-time DWI offenses to violent crimes.
