Being charged with a crime is not the same as being convicted of a crime. To be convicted, the court must find you to be guilty of the charge beyond a reasonable level of doubt. The right legal defense strategy can have a significant impact on the court’s verdict.
The time to start working on your legal strategy with an experienced criminal defense lawyer is as soon as possible after your arrest. The sooner you start working with a lawyer, the stronger your defense can be.
Our team works with individuals facing the following types of charge:
Our team also works with individuals who have been subjected to unlawful property seizures after being accused of committing criminal offenses.
We also handle juvenile cases. When your child is facing a juvenile charge, such as an underage drinking or a vandalism charge, it is important that you work with a lawyer who has specific experience working with the juvenile court system to fight the charge. This is because there are many substantial differences between the juvenile court system and the adult justice system.
It is always in your best interest to work with a criminal defense lawyer to fight your case. Even if you are “only” facing a traffic offense charge or another low-level misdemeanor, you should always fight the charge instead of pleading guilty. Why? Because having a conviction on your criminal record can affect your life in a variety of ways for years to come, including subjecting you to steeper penalties for any charges you face in the future.
Your criminal defense lawyer is your advocate. It is his or her job to work hard on your behalf to demonstrate that you are not guilty of your charge. Depending on the charge you are facing and the circumstances surrounding the case, your best case scenario might be accepting a plea bargain or participating in a pretrial diversion program. If this is the case for you, your lawyer will discuss this with you and work to try to reach an appropriate resolution for the case.
No matter what type of criminal charge you are facing, you always have the right to fight your charge with the aid of an experienced criminal defense lawyer. Do not make the mistake of representing your case yourself – this nearly never results in a favorable outcome for the defendant. Instead, contact our team of criminal defense lawyers at Nickola Law today to set up your initial legal consultation in our office, during which we can answer any questions you have and determine the most effective legal defense strategy for your case.
