Why To Consult An Attorney-www.ggg138.com

Legal As a member of The Wade Law Firm, criminal defense attorney Henry Wade has been actively practicing law in Texas for over 20 years and has presided over hundreds of cases ranging from minor chargers to major criminal offenses. With all his experience in the courtroom, Wade understands the benefits of having a lawyer and tries to educate current and prospective clients on the importance of having a well-informed attorney. If you feel that a crime has been .mitted against you or that you are under investigation, then you should never hesitate to seek professional legal advice. When to Contact a Lawyer Usually, people think that they can handle their cases by themselves. Or, they believe that the only time they need a lawyer is when they already have a court date set. But in my experience, the sooner you contact a lawyer, the better. When you first suspect or learn that you are under investigation, you should contact a lawyer, even if you dont think your case is criminal. Not only will your lawyer be able to provide you with great legal advice, but he can stop you from damaging your case through admission. What to Do without an Attorney As we know, police officers have been trained to get the information they need from suspects, which should always be in the forefront of your mind. You should realize that officers will try to get information from you via two distinct tactics: acting like your friend, or through intimidation. When an officer asks to enter your home, or starts a conversation with you, always have your guard up and dont say too much, even if he seems nice and understanding. Ask to speak with a lawyer or say that youd rather not supply any information, besides your name, without the presence of a lawyer. Law enforcement may also try to pressure or scare you into sharing information. Stand your ground and remain persistent, but polite. Anything you say at this stage can be used against you, and can damage your case. Why to Hire a Lawyer When you appear for your court date, you automatically get in line to speak with the prosecutor, who you suspect will cut you a deal. But the prosecutor should not be your first point of contact when it .es to seeking legal advice. He is under no obligation to go over every possibility with you. And, if you are not well-versed in the area of the law for which you are being charged, then its likely that youre not being offered the best possible out.e. Instead, you should hire a lawyer who will be able to negotiate better terms for you, or get your charges thrown out altogether. The right lawyer will know about possible loopholes, past precedents and legal jargon. Even if you havent had a lawyer up until this stage of your prosecution, it can still be beneficial for you to contact an attorney who will appear in court alongside you. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
