Why should I hire a criminal defense attorney?Return to FAQ Videos
You should always hire a criminal defense attorney any time that you’re arrested, to challenge the case against you. Just because you were arrested for a crime, doesn’t mean that you’re guilty of the crime, and doesn’t mean the state can prove that you’re guilty of a crime. It gives the attorney an opportunity to challenge the initial contact with you, the search of you, any evidence against you, any statements that were made against you. And it gives the attorney the opportunity to challenge those things and to potentially get evidence thrown out and cases dismissed.
