It Is Always in Your Best Interest to Hire an Attorney
Some people do not think they need a lawyer because they believe they are guilty of all the charges against them, and they should just plead guilty to get a lighter sentence. It is not unusual for law enforcement to stack as many charges as possible onto a defendant to build a stronger case for the prosecution. These charges can often be reduced or dropped when a skilled attorney is working on your case.
An experienced lawyer can negotiate on your behalf to obtain a better deal than what the prosecution would offer otherwise. Never assume that your case is set in stone at the time of your arrest. The prosecution only cares about landing a conviction, even if the charges and penalties are not equivalent to what the defendant deserves. You will want someone on your side to make sure this doesn’t happen.
