Law & Justice: A Conversation With A Top Dorchester County Criminal Defense Attorney

Why You Must Hire A Criminal Defense Attorney ASAP When Charged With A Crime?

Time, it’s something we all value—the time to spend with our friends and family, enjoying life and experiencing all that each new day brings. Time is not something you want to serve, as ‘serving time’ or ‘doing time’ are of course simply euphemisms for being locked up in a prison cell. It’s not a pretty picture, and it’s something you want to avoid at all cost. That’s why it’s critically important to treat every criminal charge with respect and to acknowledge that many charges, even those that seem like small ones, have the ability to take away your freedom.

When you’re charged with a crime, or even when you think that charges may be pending, you need to reach out to your Dorchester County criminal defense attorney immediately, and if you don’t already have one, the time to begin looking for one is now. You never know when you could find yourself in violation of the law, and when you are, there’s simply no time to waste. Criminal convictions, even misdemeanors, can wreck your life, from fines and fees, to extensive damage to your reputation, possible loss of job and/or difficulty finding a job afterward, emotional trauma, and incarceration. Therefore, when you’re charged, you need to act right away and bring a skilled, experienced Dorchester County criminal defense attorney on board.

Why the need for speed when everyone knows the courts move slowly? Because from the second you are charged, the prosecution will be working to convict you, and take away your freedom if at all possible. Prosecutors love a conviction, in fact, it’s really what makes them get out of bed in the morning, because convictions mean success, and success leads to promotions and more money for prosecutors. And what’s not to like about all that? The answer is: plenty, if you’re the one who is being convicted. Therefore, you absolutely must level the playing field immediately.

When you bring a seasoned criminal defense attorney on board, you will be significantly increasing your odds of getting your case dismissed or acquitted, of reducing your charges, of reducing your sentence, of exchanging your potential jail time for community service or another state-run program, and more. But don’t just take our word for it, research the data and you’ll see that criminal defendants fair far better when they are represented by a skilled criminal defense attorney than when they are not. This is because a criminal defense attorney in Dorchester County can negotiate with prosecutors on your behalf.

Skilled criminal defense attorneys look for evidence and police errors that can sometimes get cases dismissed. They can help navigate plea bargains that benefit you directly with potentially less jail time, fines, etc. They argue for you in court and can win acquittals. They work with the court to get clients into programs and community service, etc. in lieu of jail time. They work with prosecutors to negotiate charges and can often get charges reduced, sometimes dismissed entirely.

By this point, you are beginning to truly see the many benefits of hiring a criminal defense attorney right away. Don’t risk your financial future and freedom, hire a top Dorchester County criminal defense attorney; hire Sahn Law Firm – Attorneys at Law and let us get to work for you.
