Being charged with a criminal offense does not automatically mean a conviction is a foregone conclusion. Every person accused of a crime has a legal right to defend themselves against the criminal charges they are facing. In addition, the prosecution is held to a standard of proving beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused is guilty. Every defendant has a legal right to competent legal counsel to present his or her defense, which may include:

The attorney you choose to represent your legal rights and freedoms in a criminal case may significantly affect the outcome of your criminal defense case.

Experience, qualifications, a track record for successfully representing criminal defendants, aggressive pursuit of justice... these are all things that you should look for in choosing an effective criminal defense attorney to fight for you in the defense of the criminal allegations against you.
