Know your options in criminal justice cases
In one of our most recent blog posts, we discussed the important purposes of plea agreements. If you recall, we discussed how these agreements can help you to resolve your case faster and give you some measure of control over how the case is resolved. We also talked about how there are certain points that you have to think about if you are considering a plea agreement.
We know that you might be worried about how your case is resolved. You might be worried about having to go to jail or pay hefty fines. Those are valid concerns that we can discuss with you. We aren’t going to promise you that you won’t face penalties in your case. Instead, we are going to be honest with you about what might happen so that you can make choices based on the facts.
Your defense strategy is something that you have a personal interest in. For that reason, it is vital that you know what is going on with it. You should be comfortable with the decisions that are made in your case. That is why we discuss your case with you. We want you to know the possible options and make decisions that you can live with.
No matter what kind of charge you are facing, you are looking at possible criminal justice penalties that can range from probation to incarceration. Trying to minimize the penalties you face if you are convicted is the overall goal that we have for criminal justice cases we work on. We work with you so that we are on the same page.
