“Should I Hire An Attorney?”

One question that people with legal problems continually ask is whether hiring an attorney is really necessary. The problem could be criminal charges, divorce papers, crushing debt, problems with local government, or related issues. The answer is simply YES. Without knowing anything about a case, I can say based on practicing law since 1995 that without a proper defense against criminal charges, you will almost definitely suffer a lifetime conviction for the crime you’re accused of. A criminal conviction can be devastating and is permanent. In non-criminal matters the effects may be similarly disastrous. Government prosecutors will not be inclined to discuss your case with you or listen to anything you have to say in your defense. They will simply give you your charges and expect you to plead guilty. Opposing attorneys in non-criminal matters are there to help their own clients, not you. Judges are prohibited from helping either side.

I cannot overstate the value of having a defense lawyer fight for you. This is especially true if you have no criminal record and this is your first time being charged with a crime. There are all sorts of opportunities to avoid a conviction or lessen the consequences so your life is not ruined. In non-criminal cases, proper representation can also save you from permanent damage.

Don't go to court without an attorney. Don't think you can talk your way out of trouble when you are accused or suspected of a crime. Don’t try to navigate the complex legal system alone. Contact Kalasnik Law Office, LLC first.
