Criminal Defense Attorneys at ASG Legal
So, what areas of law will you find a defense lawyer working in? There may be more than you think. A defense attorney may work on DUI or other traffic defenses and drug offenses. They may work with weapon crimes, property crimes, and white collar crimes. They can work on fraud and theft cases. A knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer can help you with all state and federal misdemeanor and felonies, including violent crimes, or crimes of a sexual nature.
Criminal defense lawyers also handle such things as probation violations, plea agreements, criminal records expunction and sealing, and litigation.
If you have been accused of committing a crime or are in the initial stages of being investigated, then you need a criminal defense attorney, immediately. Our team has the experience, the knowledge, and the talent to mount a solid defense on your behalf.
We also realize that it is not only serious criminal trials where you might need help. If you are trying to fight a citation that was given to you after getting pulled over, our traffic ticket attorneys can handle that for you too. Many people are unaware that they are allowed to have legal representation when it comes to minor appearances in court. However, it is still a trial, and you are allowed to have representation. Traffic ticket lawyers are excellent at pleading down to lesser charges, or getting tickets thrown out altogether.
Protecting Your Rights
First and foremost, criminal defense attorneys make sure that your rights are protected. We will protect your:
- Fourth Amendment Rights – you have the right to be protected against unlawful searches and seizures.
- Fifth and Sixth Amendments Rights – you have the right to remain silent and the right not to incriminate yourself. You should always have your lawyer present when speaking to law enforcement or the prosecution.
Immediately, we will look into your charges and ensure that your rights have been 100% protected. We will make sure every step of the investigation has been done to the letter of the law. We will examine every document to make sure that is properly filled out and cataloged. We will go where we need to go to find the information that we need for your defense. We will get what we need to provide the best possible defense.
A defense needs to be strong and without holes. Your job is to tell us the truth of the matter in as much detail as possible, and we will highlight areas that might look vulnerable to a prosecution attorney.
Sometimes, instead of a trial, we may reach a plea bargain. This is generally a lesser charge for admission of guilt and a reduced sentence. We can discuss this option in complete confidence.
Our team will be with you from start to finish, before, during, and after the litigation process. As your criminal defense attorneys, we will be on your team.
Now is the time to act. Meet our criminal defense team to learn more about our services, and the different areas our firm specializes in.
