If you or a loved one have been arrested, many choices must be made, and there is usually some sense of urgency in making those choices. If you are before a judge in the Juvenile Court, please follow this link; otherwise, please read on.
One of the decisions to be made is whether to hire an attorney. If you choose not to hire an attorney, you decide to navigate the course with a blindfold. Before law school, I remember trying to fight a traffic ticket without help. I was utterly overwhelmed by what the prosecutor gave me. It seemed like nothing was written in English, or, at least, not understand English. Everything was under State v. Smith, or State v. Doe. I was lost. Then I went to law school. Now I know what these cases mean, and I understand how they apply to the cases I am working on. On top of the confusing case law, more than 40 rules must be followed in the Rules of Criminal Procedure, for example, and more if an appeal is needed.
If you choose to hire the right attorney, you will be guided through your court process with someone who has been there before. Judges can be intimidating, as can prosecutors. This is doubly true when your freedom is on the line because you are not only in unfamiliar circumstances, but the stakes are extraordinarily high. A misstep in court can land you in jail, prison, and/or with hundreds of dollars in fines.
Our expert attorneys are nationally known for their exemplary talent to provide their clients with the legal advice that they deserve; all the while being some of the most decorated lawyers in Utah.
A problem, if you choose to go it alone, is that you may not know what those mistakes are and almost certainly will not know how to capitalize on errors that may have been made. Not all cases have mistakes, and not all mistakes can be capitalized on, but it would be potentially life-changing if a mistake were missed that could have kept you out of prison. This is one significant benefit of hiring an attorney to get you through your days in court. Still, there are tens of others, not to mention the simple fact that you will be able to relax when you know that you have a competent, experienced attorney leading you through the maze of judicial jargon, case law, and trial appointments.
