Why should I hire an attorney if I am guilty or want to plead guility?
This is a question that I hear from many people who contact me. First, even though you believe you are guilty, the government must prove its case against you beyond a reasonable doubt. In many cases, the proof is simply not there, and with the help of an experienced criminal defense attorney, the case often may be dropped. Without an attorney, the prosecutor normally will not tell you that they are missing a witness and can't prove their case, so you will be stuck with a criminal record for no reason.
Even if you choose to plead guilty, an experienced criminal defense specialist can negotiate or obtain a much better result for you at sentencing. Recently, I was contacted by a client who was convicted of several felonies, including pointing a loaded gun at someone, and was facing state prison of seven years. His previous attorney told me that “it was certain” he would be going to state prison on the AK-47 firearm and felony assault charges.
My legal team and I took the time to get to know the client and present life history information to the judge. The client was sentenced to only 180 days of actual custody—-much better than state prison.
