Do you really need to hire a lawyer, or can you represent yourself in a legal matter?
Although you may be tempted to save some money by representing yourself in court, hiring an attorney is by far the better option, and can save you even more trouble and expense in the long run.
Why You Should Hire An Attorney
Here is our list of five reasons hiring an attorney is a good plan:
Law Is Complicated
Lawyers don’t spend 3-4 years in graduate school for nothing. The law is incredibly complex, and legal proceedings are meticulous and drawn out and require a clear mind with experience to be able to come out the other side successfully.
While you may know a lot about your particular case, and have the advice of many non-legal experts, an experienced attorney is a must for understanding the ins and outs of your particular case.
You're Not Sure How To Plead
It May Be Less Expensive
It is in your best interest as a defendant to hire a lawyer. But what if you can’t afford one?
Our Constitution provides for that. Those who are not able to afford a lawyer are not unfairly penalized; the court provides an attorney for these “indigent” defendants free of charge. While personal lawyers have more familiarity with your case, these public defense attorneys are able to adequately represent you in your time of need.
If you or someone you know has been charged with a crime, it is important to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney that can help zealously defend your case. Contact us at Minick Law, P.C. for a free consultation on your case.
