When Should I Hire a Lawyer?
If you have been:
- Questioned by police about something you did or were involved in
- Asked by law enforcement for information or documentation
- Placed in jail
- Charged with a crime
You should contact an experienced criminal defense attorney. If you are asking yourself, “Should I hire a lawyer?” you should speak with an experienced defense attorney.
You Have One Call — Make It Roberts Law Group, PLLC
As a former prosecutor in the Wilmington area, attorney Patrick Roberts of Roberts Law Group, PLLC, understands that information collected, even before an arrest, can be used against you in a criminal proceeding. If you suspect that you are the subject of a police investigation or know that you are because you have been arrested, the time to call an attorney is now.
Do Not Go to Court Without an Attorney
You have the right to be represented by an attorney. If you are going to court, you should exercise that right. The city, county, state and even the federal government will have an attorney on its side who knows the law and understands the process and will use that information to push for a conviction and punishment.
You should have an attorney on your side, too, one who knows the law from the prosecutor’s side and the defense side. As a former Assistant District Attorney in New Hanover County, Patrick Roberts can put his skill and experience in a courtroom behind your defense strategy.
A North Carolina criminal defense lawyer will explain the charges you face, the evidence against you, the prosecutor’s burden in proving that you did something wrong and the penalties you may face. In the criminal defense world, knowledge is power — the power to know when you should fight and when you should negotiate. An experienced defense attorney can give you the knowledge — and the power — to come to the best possible resolution of your case.
