Why do you need a criminal attorney?

When facing criminal charges, many people wonder why they should involve a private criminal defense lawyer and at what point this should take place in the criminal process. The truth of the matter is that it is never too early to involve an attorney. You may have simply been accused of a crime at this point, or perhaps formal charges have not yet been filed.

It is important to recognize in these situations that law enforcement is actively working to secure the evidence against you which will enable them to file formal charges, and having an attorney at your side as early as possible can actually improve your chances of avoiding formal criminal charges altogether.

Even if you simply believe that charges may be filed against you in the near future, it is still a good idea to speak immediately with a lawyer who could be able to answer some of your questions and prepare for possibly defending you, depending upon what happens with your impending charges. It is never a bad idea to be fully prepared for any circumstances that you might encounter.

Talk To An Attorney No Matter How Light Your Charges May Seem

If you or someone you care about has been charged with a crime in Scranton or Wilkes-Barre, regardless of the severity of the charges, you should immediately speak with criminal defense attorney Patrick M. Rogan. Even a seemingly minor offense can result in long-term consequences than may cause many rifts in your life, so it is absolutely necessary to take action to protect your future by consulting with an attorney.
