Frequently Asked Questions

About:  Criminal Cases  |  Civil Cases

Q. Why can't I just plead guilty?

A. Unless you have representation, you will be in court with your freedom at stake without a person to represent your point of view, and to evaulate and argue for a result that is your best interest.

Q. When should I get a lawyer?

A. As soon as possible. You can lose defenses unless you file certain motions in a timely manner.

Q. What should I do if I am accused?

A. Make an appointment with a lawyer before you speak to police or any other person about the accusations.

Q. Should I have a jury trial?

A. In most cases, serious criminal charges will automatically provide for a jury trial, but you and your lawyer should discuss the good and bad elements of judge or jury trials.
