Defending You Against Criminal Charges
If you have been charged with a criminal offense, you may feel that your finances limit your legal options. You can accept a plea or fight the charges on your own in court. You may believe that it's financially responsible to represent yourself, especially with misdemeanor offenses or in hearings. While self-representation can save you money in the short term, there are risks attached to this approach. Pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge can affect your ability to secure a job, apartment or loan at a reasonable rate. Over the long run, these restrictions can cost you more than hiring a criminal defense lawyer.
