If you have been falsely accused of a crime, and are now facing criminal charges and/or jail time, it may be beneficial for you to hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer. The legal system is designed in such a way that even the smartest people cannot always successfully represent themselves in a criminal trial. Criminal defense attorneys have special training and skills that allow them to determine specific arguments and factors that can minimize or dismiss the charges brought against a person.
At Anderson & Carnahan, Attorneys at Law, our criminal defense lawyers work diligently to ensure that our clients receive outstanding legal services and representation. Our firm offers flexible payment options and accepts all major credit cards, so people may receive the assistance they deserve at a price they can afford. Please contact our firm to learn how we may be able to help with your criminal case.
When hired, our team of defense attorneys takes on many responsibilities. Not only will we gather witnesses in your defense and cross-examine the prosecution’s witnesses, but our lawyers will also collaborate with all parties to negotiate an acceptable plea bargain. A plea bargain may reduce the initial sentence or eliminate charges brought against a person, and debating a plea bargain is a crucial part of a person’s trial.
Prosecutors are often unwilling to negotiate plea bargains with people who represent themselves, which makes it extremely difficult for them to receive a lesser sentence. Defense attorneys may also determine a satisfactory sentencing program in the event that you are found guilty, such as reducing a jail sentence if you agree to spend time in a rehab facility. They may also explain the negatives of pleading guilty, hire investigators, find expert witnesses, and navigate your case through the legal system.
It is imperative to seek criminal defense as soon as possible. Depending on the nature of your case, your future may be in jeopardy, and you do not want your life to be in an inexperienced lawyer’s hands. Anderson & Carnahan, Attorneys at Law, provide clients with a team of lawyers who have more than three decades of combined legal experience, and we are more than capable of handling various types of criminal defense cases. Please contact our firm to schedule an appointment with our attorneys as soon as possible!
