What Are The Advantages Of Hiring Your Own Attorney?

Being charged with a crime in Texas is a very daunting experience. The state has several resources that they will use when they are investigating and prosecuting your case. If you attempt to handle your case without an attorney, you are going to be at a severe disadvantage. I wanted to discuss some of the most important reasons why you need to hire an attorney for your case.

I know the law, and the options that will be available to you.

If you are arrested for a DWI, drug crime or other type of criminal activity, you are going to have a lot of questions. You may want to ask law enforcement officers or prosecutors about what is going to happen in your case, and know that they are going to give you answers that are designed to make you feel hopeless.

You need someone there to protect your rights at all times. I will make sure that police and prosecutors follow all procedures properly, and I will build a defense that helps you protect your freedom. I will help you evaluate all of your options, and then work with you to develop a strategy that maximizes your potential chances of success. In some situations, we may even be able to take advantage of pretrial diversion programs, but only if you reach out to me as soon as possible.

I am going to focus on putting you in a strong position to fight these charges.

Throughout your case, I will be examining the evidence that is available, and performing my own investigations to help find anything that may clear your name. Additionally, I will be negotiating with the prosecution to help you reach a deal that is in your best interests. Should your case head to trial, I will be ready to fight for you. I have handled many criminal cases in the courtroom as a prosecutor, and I know how the other side works.

I can help you protect your professional license.

Some occupations require a great deal of training and certification before a person will be allowed to work in these fields. A conviction of a crime, even something as seemingly minor as a DWI, could have serious implications upon your ability to earn a living in your chosen profession.

As your attorney, I will take steps to address the potential consequences that may result in the event you are convicted. At Herreth Law, I will make sure that you are aware of the specific issues that need to be examined, and help you determine the best moves to protect your future.
