Why does it matter who you select to represent you in a criminal case,
violent crime or
sex crime? Not all defense attorneys are equal in their abilities at trial. There
is a basic fundamental that must exist in your attorney for your defense
case to be successful – A Canton criminal defense attorney will
believe in you, and be completely and utterly on your side in every way.
You are innocent until proven guilty under the law, and the "burden
of proof" lies with the prosecutor. Your attorney must be personally
committed to helping you to seek justice. Another important point is the
lawyer's trial abilities. There are attorneys that don't like
to go to trial, and urge their clients to accept a plea – even if
their client claims to be completely innocent. Unfortunately, there are
many people serving time today that accepted a plea bargain when they
had not committed the crime. This is one of the most terrible tragedies
in the court system – a person who is advised to take a plea when
they did not commit the crime.
Another factor that comes into play is the intelligence and insight of
your attorney. Every defense case must be carefully strategized for success.
A lawyer that can best serve you will take the time to evaluate every
detail of your case – even a misdemeanor DUI – to find the
areas that have errors or flaws. Without the full commitment to you and
your case, it is far less likely that you will be found "not guilty".
Make sure you have legal representation that genuinely cares about you,
believes you and will fight for you. Check out their references, their
background and their success in court. When you have an attorney with
the right qualifications, you can greatly increase the possibility of
a successful case outcome.
