Do I Need to Hire a Criminal Defense Attorney?

Yes, in most instances if you are unfamiliar with the legal process, and/or you have no legal training.  A criminal defense attorney can help you understand your rights if you are arrested, reduce bail if you are eligible for bail, seek a bail reduction if you cannot afford bail, navigate the criminal process after an arrest and explain and preserve your constitutional rights. In some instances, certain results are fairly typical and representation may not be needed such as propostion 200 eligible cases.
