Why Hire a Criminal Defense Attorney?
If you are accused of a crime, legal representation is essential. You can learn about harmful consequences of self-representation at: Criminal Defense Attorney Representation.
When you represent yourself, you are presumed to understand the laws, rules, and procedures of the criminal justice system. The prosecutor & the judge are not your advocates in the courtroom- they are
not there to help you identify the best strategies for your case. The prosecutor’s role is to convict the guilty, and the judge’s job is to facilitate an orderly courtroom; their responsibilities do not include providing legal advice to you.
If the prosecutor puts forth sufficient evidence of your guilt to a judge or jury, you will be convicted of a crime. If you are convicted of a crime, you can be incarcerated and/or fined, and ordered by the court to complete other terms and conditions.
However, there are defenses and strategies which may help contest your criminal charges, and lead to a reduction or dismissal.
Proper legal representation from an experienced attorney is critical. So, find out your options, and have George Kita evaluate your case to determine defenses and approaches which are best suited to you.
