Should I Hire a Minnesota Defense Attorney?

It can be hard to decide whether to hire an attorney for your case. Here are a few of the benefits of hiring an experienced Minnesota Criminal Defense Attorney, in the event you are facing criminal charges.

• Pleading Guilty Without an Attorney Is Often More Costly

There are many long term and short term consequences to pleading guilty to any crime in Minnesota. As a former prosecutor, I can inform you of all the consequences and costs that may result from the criminal charges you are facing and assist you with making an informed decision about your case. Factoring in all the consequences and penalties you are facing from the criminal charges, the expense of hiring one of our attorneys is often less expensive than pleading guilty guilty without a fight. 

• Time is Important, Delaying Can Hurt Your Case

Preparing an aggressive and successful defense for any criminal case requires a time commitment from your attorney. The earlier in the process you retain a lawyer, the quicker he can begin to request discovery from the prosecutor, investigate and gather facts, and prepare an aggressive defense for your case. 

• Going Through The Process Alone Is Hard

When you are charged with a crime, you are alone. Law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and judges are not there to help you or your case. Your lawyer is the only person with any influence in the courtroom that is on your side, throughout the whole process. A strong and powerful relationship between you and your attorney is built on communication and trust. You will need to trust your lawyer with important information and facts relating to your case, and also be able to rely on the advice given to you by your attorney.
