Benefits of a criminal defense attorney

Facing criminal charges in Texas is frightening, especially if this has never happened to you. These charges can range in penalties from fines to years in prison based on whether or not the charge was a misdemeanor or a felony. When you are facing these charges, it is in your best interest to work with a criminal defense attorney to protect your rights.

One of the biggest benefits of working with a criminal defense attorney is that he or she will know how to negotiate with the prosecutor who has been assigned to the case. These attorneys have likely litigated against each other in the past so they know what to look for. A defense attorney can help lower your charge or even negotiate a deal where the charge is dropped.

A criminal defense attorney will also be able to review your case and offer you an honest outlook. They will not simply tell you what you want to hear. They will explain what it is you can expect if the case reaches trial and the type of sentencing you could be facing.

When you work with a criminal defense attorney you won't have trouble meeting the required deadlines for filing paperwork with the court. This includes preparing to file for an appeal on a prior ruling.

Criminal defense attorneys have access to some of the best expert witnesses in the state. They will know whom to contact and what questions to ask in order to help your case.
