When to Contact an Attorney
There are more legal defenses available when you notify your skilled Fincher defense attorney early on during the legal proceedings. If you are currently under investigation for a crime, please contact an attorney before discussing the investigation with the authorities. In some cases, it is even possible to prevent an arrest from occurring. If you have been arrested, your lawyer may be able to work to prevent the Jefferson County prosecutor from filing charges. If you have been charged with a crime, you will need an experienced lawyer to protect your rights and best interests during every investigation and interrogation.
Building a Defense
When arrested and booked on criminal charges, you may feel as if your rights have been taken away from you. It is important to remember that you retain the right to remain silent, to present your case in court and to be represented by a knowledgeable Fincher defense attorney. You do not have to accept a plea deal or face the charges alone.
Your defense attorney will review all aspects of your case to help you determine which legal options are available. For instance, your defense may be built on the fact that your rights were violated during the arrest. Was evidence wrongfully obtained without a warrant? Were you not informed of your rights before being interrogated or searched? Are the charges based on hearsay and conjecture? Did the authorities entrap you during an Internet sting operation? Did your DUI charge result from an inappropriately handled lab test? Are you the victim of a mistaken identity or ulterior motive?
Fighting the Charges
There are many reasons why it may be in your best interest to fight the charges. The consequences of a conviction in Fincher include jail or prison time, heavy fines, probation, the creation of a criminal record and significant reductions of your civil liberties.
