Do I Need a Lawyer?
As a criminal defendant, you have numerous constitutional and statutory protections. But most non-lawyers simply do not know the full extent of their rights—or how to best protect them against the weight of government criminal charges. Just as you would not perform surgery on yourself, you should not represent yourself in court. Even for minor criminal charges, or if you plan on pleading guilty, you should work with a skilled Avon, Vail, and Eagle criminal defense attorney. Only a seasoned defense attorney can look at your situation through eyes that understand the entire process, from start to finish.
Many people falsely believe they could save time and money by representing themselves in court and “just pleading guilty” to the charges to “get it over with.” While we understand your desire to move on with your life as quickly as possible, if you do not fully grasp all of the consequences of a guilty plea before entering one—you will likely not be able to reverse some of the unexpected damage that might result. Also, the State’s case against you could be weak or have a fatal flaw that inexperienced eyes cannot see. When your very freedom is on the line, do not leave your fate up to chance. Working with an experienced defense attorney could save you untold pain and expense in the future.
