A criminal conviction can change your life, and have a major impact on your future. Employers, educational institutions, and even landlords often use criminal background checks as a means of assessing potential employees, students, or residents, which means a mark on your record can prevent you from having the life that you want. When it comes to keeping a criminal charge from turning into a criminal conviction, it starts at the moment of arrest. By working with a lawyer with ample experience in criminal law from the very start, you have your best shot at walking away from the charges against you and keeping your record clean.
While felony crimes carry tougher consequences, including longer prison sentences and higher fines, even misdemeanor criminal charges can influence the course of your life. Thatâ€™s why itâ€™s essential to start fighting for your rights from the moment of your arrest. Having an attorney with you early on in the process provides you with guidance when it comes to answering police questions, gives you a chance in pretrial motions to get your story told and understood, possbily preventing the case from having to go to trial, and offers you support during what is sure to be one of the most difficult periods of your life.
