Do I really need a criminal defense attorney?

We hear this question often. The answer is almost always “yes”. This is because even if you are facing charges and you know that you will be facing some amount of time behind bars, the kind of punishment and the amount of time for which you can expect to spend behind bars can vary wildly. This is where a criminal defense attorney can help you. A criminal defense lawyer can help you work towards a dismissal or significant reduction of the original charges against you.
