Second, begin to understand the situation. Getting arrested can be a scary and emotionally difficult experience. Not only for you, but your loved ones as well. You should not do this alone. You need a guiding hand to help you navigate this situation.
The process of choosing an attorney is an important one. You want someone who can analyze your case accurately and help you make the best decision how to proceed. No one likes attorneys who just say what they think you want to hear.
I Don’t Have A Record, Do I Really Need An Attorney For My Criminal Law Issue?
Just because you don’t have a record, don’t think that the prosecutor will avoid steep penalties. The sentencing guidelines in Indiana apply the very first time you make a mistake. That means for an A Misdemeanor, you could be looking at up to year in jail, for each charge if convicted.
What Happens In The Initial Consultation?
We want to hear your story. What happened?
Then, we will review your charges and go over the possible penalties.
Next, we will describe what our role is in your case. We’re here for you. And more importantly, we’re here to fight for you. You want to make sure you have someone looking out for your best interests.
Lastly, we’ll talk about the fee agreement and how much the costs will be.
Can I Hire You At The Initial Consultation?
Absolutely. Some people want to think about the information we reviewed during the initial consultation. While that is perfectly ok, don’t waste too much time as this process happens fast and we will need that time to achieve an optimal result. Sometimes people think they can reduce their costs by waiting until the last minute and only hiring an attorney just before court. This is usually NOT the case. Last minute efforts can cause delay and extend an already stressful situation. By hiring us as soon as possible, we have time to conclude your matter in a timely manner.
