While living in Hatboro, there’s always the possibility that a crime could occur even though it’s usually rare because of the nature of the atmosphere of the town. Some of the crimes that can take place in the town include robberies, vandalism, and drug usage. Officers in the area are trying to pay more attention to the crimes that are taking place in the area and arresting those who commit those crimes. Whether you’ve been arrested for a simple misdemeanor of a significant crime that could result in time spent in jail if you’re convicted, you need to seek the assistance of an attorney who provides criminal defense.
Our office has assisted numerous clients who have been arrested after committing a crime. We will look at the evidence presented to determine the best approach for handling your case. Sometimes, you might be advised to accept a plea deal if there is significant evidence to show that you committed the crime in question. However, if we believe that you are innocent, then we can help you fight your case in court. One reason to seek the assistance of a criminal defense attorney is that a conviction can negatively impact several areas in your life, such as your current job or the ability to obtain a job in the future. It can also mean negative relationships with your family and friends. If you’re convicted of the crime that you’re charged with, then you could have to pay hundreds of dollars in fines, spend time in jail, or spend time on probation.
When you’re going through the process of court and trying to make sure you have all of the details in place that indicate your involvement in the crime, it can involve a lot of time that you might not have. Your attorney can work to gather any evidence that could be used on your behalf and also gather any necessary paperwork that might be needed to give to the court. Any testimonies on your behalf need to be reviewed and submitted to the court. Witnesses need to be interviewed, and your attorney needs to coordinate with them in order for them to be present in court when you go to trial. All of these issues can take time away from your job and your family, resulting in possibly losing your job if you don’t have an understanding employer.
Working with an attorney means that you have someone on your side who can give you the advice that you need to get through your trial. You’ll have someone who understands the legal aspects of your case, details that you might not know about. You’ll be told about options that are available that you might not know about or even have access to if you decide to handle the case on your own without the help of an attorney. While talking to an attorney, you’ll be instructed as to how to answer questions in court and how to carry yourself while you’re in the courtroom.
When you consult with our attorneys, your trial will receive the attention that it needs. We will make sure that you receive a fair hearing from beginning to end. Our attorneys can often work with the prosecution to develop a plan that keeps you out of jail or that decreases the length of time that you spend in jail if you’re convicted. You’ll receive one-on-one conversations instead of those that are highly detailed with several people in the room. These conversations allow you to better understand what to expect and how a strong defense can be prepared on your behalf.
