Top 3 Benefits of Hiring a Criminal Defense Attorney to Fight Drug Charges , Manhattan, New York

There is quite a bit of stress and uncertainty that comes with being arrested on drug charges. Depending on your specific situation, you may simply be required to pay a significant fine, or you could be facing jail time and a felony record. It’s crucial to hire a criminal defense attorney, in either case, to give yourself the opportunity to achieve the best possible outcome. 

Why You Should Enlist a Criminal Defense Attorney

1. Protect Your Rights

Most people aren’t familiar with their rights under criminal law, especially if they’ve never been arrested before. A defense attorney will help you understand what constitutes an unlawful search, for instance, and whether your arrest was properly handled by the police. They will also keep you from incriminating yourself in court and coach you on how best to present your case.

2. Knowledge of the Law

criminal defenseDrug laws are complicated for someone with no legal background. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and unsure about what steps to take once you’re arrested and charged. Criminal defense attorneys are well-versed in the law and will know how to apply certain aspects to your case.

3. Chance to Reduce or Dismiss the Charges

Hiring an attorney will increase the odds of getting the charges against you reduced or dropped. They will thoroughly analyze the evidence to build a solid defense strategy if the case goes to trial. Otherwise, they will help you decide if negotiating a plea bargain for a lesser sentence would be in your best interests.
