It’s not every day we are faced with the prospect of going to court, so deciding who should represent you is of the utmost importance if you want to win your case.
So, what should you look for in a criminal lawyer to provide the best legal advice to make sure you avoid fines, penalties or even the prospect of going to jail?
When you’re charged with a crime, no matter what the incident, you’ll need to defend the charge, and the best way is with the best lawyer and a law firm that is by your side protecting your rights.
However, finding the best lawyer is not that easy as some are better than others, have a greater grasp on criminal law, the nature of criminal charges and the tactics police use to interrogate suspects placed under arrest.
The main thing to look out for is the breadth of experience a lawyer has, including Drink Driving (DUI), Bail Applications, Drug Charges, Assault Charges, Drug Driving Offences, Centrelink Fraud, Sex Offence, Domestic Violence Complaints, Causing Grievous Bodily Harm and many more.
If your lawyer isn’t versed in these crimes, or others such as Appeals, Murder Charge, Public Nuisance Offence, Unlawful Wounding, Work Cover Prosecution, Coronial Inquests or Industrial Relations and Anti-Discrimination Claims, then you could be putting the success of your defence at risk.
If you find yourself in a position where you have to speak to the police, you are not required to answer any questions asked by them, and in fact answering their questions may land you in more trouble than before.
Remember, whenever you’re spoken to by police you have the right to remain silent, so it’s advisable to contact the best possible lawyer before you say anything, especially if you’re taken to a police station.
For most people, it will be their first time in this situation and the experience can be stressful, especially where police may seem authoritative in their line of questioning during an interview.
