Here is a common scenario: Someone charged with a crime goes to court for their arraignment, and they meet with a prosecutor who offers them a plea deal to resolve the case. The person may want to take the deal because they want the matter resolved as soon as possible. I caution people against accepting a plea deal without speaking to an experienced defense lawyer first.
Here are a couple of reasons why I recommend people always speak with a defense attorney before taking a plea offer:
A defense attorney can tell you if the offer you are being offered is the best plea possible.
A defense attorney can tell you if there are any problems with the state’s case against you and if there are any excellent defenses.
If you need help hiring a quality defense lawyer, it is still a good idea to speak to one to see if they can work with you on cost and a financial agreement. A good defense lawyer will not be cheap, but that doesn’t mean they can’t work with you on price.
