How do I know when I might need a criminal defense attorney?

Obviously one instance that it would be strongly advisable to obtain a criminal attorney or criminal defense attorney would be if you find yourself in an arrest situation. While the old adage of “the right to remain silent” has been altered a bit in that you can be prosecuted for refusing to give police officers your real name, you are not obligated to say much more than that.

When it comes to deciding whether or not a criminal lawyer should be contacted, remember that no matter your intelligence or background, our legal system is set up such that it is virtually impossible to represent yourself in a criminal matter.

To protect your rights, you should always consult a specialist in criminal law. Even the best criminal attorney would hire a reputable attorney should he or she face the same situation. Emotions play too big of a factor when trying to present your case and because of the complexities of the law, no matter how educated you are, you will not be able to provide the best defense for yourself.
