If you have been charged with a crime, the consequences can range from mildly disruptive to consequences that totally derail your life or your career. Just think about the mistakes you read about every day in the newspaper.
A number of crimes can be expunged but some things cannot be so every charge must be taken very seriously. If you’ve been charged with a crime, get advice as soon as possible. Most law firms, including Roberts Wilson, P.A., will meet with you for a free initial consultation. Take advantage of this opportunity and make sure you know the lay of the land before proceeding.
Educating yourself about your charges and the potential consequences can make all the difference in how your case goes and even your life in the wake of a crime.
Why hire a lawyer early?
If you hire a lawyer before you bond out of jail, the lawyer can request a preliminary hearing which is sometimes granted. This can give a lawyer the opportunity to get law enforcement’s version of the story early and possibly get rid of the illegal charges early because of a lack of evidence. We know folks want out of jail as fast as possible though so if you dont hire an attorney before bonding out, it can still be helpful to hire a lawyer immediately so your lawyer can talk to the prosecutor before an indictment is sought. Once the prosecution obtains an indictment, getting favorable offers are sometimes more difficult.
What is the Bottom Line? Hire a Lawyer as Fast As Possible After Being Charged With A Crime!
