Utica Criminal Lawyers

Your life’s on the line after being charged with a crime and it is time that you fight with everything inside of you. Although a felony charge is the most serious of charges, even a misdemeanor conviction has the potential to devastate your life. If convicted, not only may you land in jail or prison, you may also be ordered to pay fines, attend court-ordered rehabilitation, be put on probation or parole, or face any number of other penalties. If that weren’t enough, criminal convictions leave your reputation and good name ruined. This may cause trouble when it is time to find employment, rent or buy a home, or even make friends! Whether you’ve been charged with assault or a more serious charge like manslaughter, you need the legal competence that a lawyer brings to the case to keep you out of hot water.

How Does an Attorney Benefit Your Criminal Case?

When dealing with life-altering matters, the expertise that an attorney brings to the table is invaluable. You’ll have peace of mind knowing the attorney is there to prepare a defense strategy and to be your voice in court. The attorney knows the laws surrounding your specific criminal matter and takes every additional step necessary to woo the case in your favor. No one wants to spend any length of time behind bars. If one person understands this, it is your attorney. This legal expert fights for your freedom and your rights with the intelligent wit and expertise that only an attorney has. You should never risk your life to go to court to face a criminal charge without an attorney there to represent your case.

What Happens if I am Convicted of a Crime?

If you are convicted of a misdemeanor crime, you can be sent to jail for a period of up to 11 months, 29 days. Additionally, the judge may place you on probation or parole, order you to take special classes, suspend your driving privileges or other rights, initiate fines, and more. Additionally, the conviction is public information that anyone can access at any time, whether it is for employment consideration or something else. A conviction could very well cause a denial in your request and a tarnished name. Felony crimes are more serious than misdemeanors. A condition could land you in prison for a period of no less than one year, with a potential of life in prison for certain charges, like murder. The same fines, classes, and consequences of a misdemeanor conviction are posed when convicted of a felony. It is scary to even think about going to jail for a month, much less calling that tiny 6 x 8 cell home for many years in the future. Our attorneys fight to prevent this from occurring.

Protect Your Rights

The judicial system promises innocence until proven guilty but anyone with any experience with the courts knows all-to-well that so often things do not happen this way and instead, you’re automatically presumed guilty before the case is heard in court. It is hard to get a fair trial when someone looks at you with the assumption that you are guilty of the crime. This is not justice and should never be the way any criminal case is handled. When a lawyer represents your case, there is less risk that you’ll be wrongly convicted and if you are convicted of the crime, will face a less harsh penalty. It is beneficial to hire an attorney because going to court alone is very scary, especially when your life and good name are both on the line. Attorneys protect your rights and ensure a fair trial when you go to court. They know the laws and how to keep you safe when the prosecution team is in full force, ready to pounce and convict you of the charge.
