Frequently Asked Questions About Criminal Defense

Until you hire an attorney, we advise not saying anything to police officers other than basic information about your identity. You have a constitutional right to remain silent and the right to a lawyer. Invoking these rights as soon as possible helps ensure you receive the best possible outcome for your case. Officers will likely try to use anything you said against you in court, which could potentially harm your case.

When seeking legal representation, you should expect that your attorney will have extensive knowledge of the law and experience defending clients who have faced the same charges as you. Ideally, your attorney should be a skilled negotiator who takes the time to answer all of your questions, explain potential scenarios, and explore your options with you. Your attorney will use creativity, insight, and all available resources to create a solution to your case.

Ideally, you will obtain legal advice from an experienced attorney before deciding whether or not to plead guilty. But regardless of what you plan to plead, hiring a criminal defense attorney is critical for protecting your rights. Even if you do decide to plead guilty, working with a criminal defense attorney can improve your outcome and may help you avoid the harshest penalties.

Mainly the severity of the punishment. Conviction of a felony means that you could serve time in a State Prison while any time served for a misdemeanor is done in a local jail and the term cannot exceed a year. To learn more, call Ansley Bennett Law.
