When Should You Hire A Criminal Defense Lawyer?

When you’ve been taken into custody or charged with a crime, the sooner you find legal representation, the better. It is vital to speak with an attorney before being interviewed by police, prosecutors, or other investigators. You are not obligated to say anything or answer any questions without legal counsel present. Although a public defender may be appointed to handle your case, hiring a seasoned criminal defense attorney to represent you can mean the difference between having charges reduced or dismissed and facing prison time. Our experienced criminal defense lawyers at Perna & Abracht, LLC will talk with you, assess your case, and advise you of your options and the best way to protect your rights.

Why Should You Hire Our Criminal Defense Attorneys?

Criminal defendants have protections under the law, such as being read your Miranda rights, which give you the right to remain silent when you are placed under arrest. However, if you are unfamiliar with how the criminal justice system works, it is easy to make mistakes and say or do things that can jeopardize your case.

Our experienced criminal defense lawyers are skilled negotiators who are often able to get charges reduced or dismissed without ever going to trial. Our team thoroughly investigates the evidence against you, for any inconsistencies, errors, or other potential issues. Your defense lawyer will inquire about every aspect of your encounters with law enforcement to determine whether they followed proper protocols during their investigation and your arrest. If your criminal case goes to trial, our attorneys will present an aggressive defense to clearly and effectively counter the accusations the prosecution has brought against you, and to potentially convince a judge or jury of your innocence. At Perna & Abracht, LLC, we care about you and the outcome of your case. Regardless of the type of charges you may be facing, we always put our best foot forward to ensure that all of our clients receive the best legal counsel possible.
