You certainly can, but we rarely recommend doing so. One of the benefits to hiring an attorney is the knowledgeable perspective that you immediately have in your corner. Many individuals choose to represent themselves, only to hire an attorney at the last second and wind up benefiting immensely. The sooner you have a legal representative, the sooner a serious legal burden is off your shoulders.
Not every case is the same, so it can be difficult to say for sure. What we can tell you is that your Miranda rights exist for a reason – your words can be easily turned into incriminating evidence that may be used against you in court. The more evidence there, the more difficult it is to defend your case. Honoring your Miranda rights is crucial to a strong defense.
Double jeopardy means that the government cannot prosecute you twice for the same crime. If you are facing prosecution for the same offense after an acquittal or a conviction, double jeopardy provides a strong defense to your case.
Yes! When you expunge your criminal record, it is essentially as if you never committed those previous crimes. The court often looks at past offenses before convicting or sentencing a current offense, so if your criminal record is cleared, it can serve as an excellent defense mechanism should you need it in the future. However, officers and prosecutors may be able to access your record with a court order.
Experience is one of the most telling signs of a successful attorney. With over 25 years of hands-on prosecution and trial experience under our belts, we understand both sides of the courtroom and are equipped to create the strong defense you need.
