15 Criminal Charges Where a Defense Attorney Can Help the Most

A lot of people assume they will never need a defense attorney until the time comes when one is essential. An experienced criminal defense attorney at Gandhi Selim Law can provide legal advice that will be challenging or impossible to find on your own. Since many charges can lead to fines, jail time, and a mark on your record for the rest of your life, handling the situation properly is important.

Criminal Charges a Defense Attorney Can Help With

Whether you’ve made a mistake or are being accused of a crime you did not commit, the right attorney can help. There are many charges a defense attorney can help with, but some of the most common include the following:

  • Animal Neglect
  • Assault
  • Burglary
  • Domestic Assault
  • Drug Crimes
  • DUI or DWI
  • Forgery
  • Identity Theft
  • Prostitution
  • Resisting Arrest
  • Robbery
  • Theft
  • Trespassing
  • Vandalism
  • Unlawful Possession of a Firearm

These and other charges can be beaten with the help of an attorney. In many cases, the potential solutions do not lead to a conviction on your criminal record.

How Defense Attorneys Can Help You

A good defense lawyer will look at the evidence, your charges, and various defenses to determine what prospects you have and how you should move forward. In some cases, attorneys can even stop charges before they are filed. In other cases, a felony may be moved to a misdemeanor.

After considering the charges against you, your attorney will look at police reports, witnesses, and evidence. This gives them the insight needed to choose a defense strategy that makes sense. This may allow you to fight the charges in a trial, negotiate lesser charges, or have the case dismissed.

Attorneys can give you insight into what is coming so you can deal with the emotional aspects of a trial. They’ll also remain objective and make sure you know what to expect at every step. The best attorneys will keep you updated on the case throughout the process to ensure you know what’s happening.

If you have been charged with a crime, you have the right to represent yourself in court. The state will also provide a free attorney to help during court. However, the best option to get a good outcome is to bring in a dedicated and experienced defense attorney at Gandhi Selim Law. Reach out to us to have a free consultation and see if this is the best solution for your situation.
