Why Do I Need a Criminal Defense Lawyer?

By Zachary Mushkatel on

If you believe you are involved in a criminal investigation, contacting an experienced Arizona criminal defense attorney without delay may be imperative.

Many people, when they find themselves involved in a criminal case, wonder whether they should contact an attorney and why. They may think that the case will be resolved without charges or that an attorney is not necessary if they are innocent.

If you believe you are the focus of a criminal investigation or you have been arrested, the help of an experienced Arizona criminal defense lawyer is crucial regardless of what the truth is.

At Mushkatel, Robbins & Becker, PLLC, our legal team wants everyone to know the best ways to protect their rights and future wellbeing. Here are just a few of the reasons the help of a defense attorney may be vital:

  • Criminal law is complex. Both the criminal laws people are expected to follow and the procedures used to try people accused of crimes in court are complex. Attorneys who regularly handle criminal cases know these laws and procedures well. They can ensure that the prosecutors and law enforcement respect your civil liberties.
  • Criminal defense lawyers offer resources you need to build the best possible defense. Your attorney can work with investigators, expert witnesses, and other resources to build the best possible defense on your behalf. Criminal defense attorneys typically have access to resources that you may not, especially if you are working to put your life back on track after the disruption of an arrest.
  • Your attorney will help you understand the charges against you. Your attorney will also help you understand what your options are and the likely consequences of each available avenue.
