Frequently Asked Questions on Criminal Defense Case

If I know I'm guilty, do I still need to hire an attorney?
Yes. Even if you know that you committed the crime you were arrested for, an attorney can prepare a defense to possibly reduce or dismiss your sentence! Without an attorney, it is difficult to combat the legal system on your own.

What is a criminal appeal?
If you were convicted of a crime, you can use a criminal appeal to explain to the court why you believe the trial decision was unjust. An experienced attorney can create a brief, which is then presented before the judges in an effort to have your case dismissed.

Why is expungement so important?
Expungement is a way to clear your criminal history and background so it is removed from your record. Criminal convictions on your record can interfere with employment and credit history. Expungement ensures your records are not viewable to the public.

What happens if I wasn't read my Miranda rights?
Unfortunately, it is not likely that your case will be dismissed if you were not read your Miranda rights. It simply means that any statements you say cannot be used against you at your trial.
