Why Are Criminal Lawyers Important And What DO They Do?
When you have been arrested, it is important that an experienced attorney reviews your case and looks for holes in the investigation. Did the police officer follow protocol when arresting you? Was evidence collected during a search of your property against legal guidelines? An attorney will be able to identify these flaws right away.
Criminal defense lawyers can also help create a strategy and prepare you for your day in court. For example, if accused of assault, an attorney may be able to argue that the defendant acted in self-defense which would exempt them from punishment.

When Can A Defense Attorney Ask For An Acquittal?
Sometimes, it’s not up to the jury to make a decision. If your attorney believes that there is insufficient evidence in favor of guilt or innocence, he may file this motion with the court for acquittal after hearing from both sides. This request asks the judge rather than a jury and will usually be filed when it has been clear by then that there are no more arguments left on behalf of either side – you have won!

What Are The Different Types Of Crime In Texas?
Crimes in Texas can be categorized as either a felony, misdemeanor, or minor offense (listed in order of severity). Felonies are further divided into different “degrees,” with each degree resulting in harsher punishments as dictated by the state’s criminal justice system. In Texas, felony crimes are classified in one of five categories: Capital, First Degree, Second Degree, Third Degree, and State Jail. Misdemeanors are designated as class A, B, or C on the crime that was committed. A minor offense refers to a crime or infraction that is less serious than felonies and misdemeanors.

What To Do When You’re Arrested
One of the scariest things that can happen to someone is getting arrested, especially if it’s your first time. You are handcuffed and taken away in a police car to be questioned at their station; but here’s what you don’t want them asking about – they won’t read your Miranda rights before questioning because any conversation with an officer will most likely incriminate oneself which means use caution when dealing with law enforcement officers for legal advice on whether or not talking should even occur.
The urge to help our fellow man is understandable. After all, it’s part of human nature to want to be helpful. But when the person asking for “your help and cooperation” is a police officer, you may want think twice – then call your lawyer while you consider the situation carefully before committing (or not). Often law enforcement officers will use that natural instinct we have as humans “to do something,” in order to facilitate their investigation into us. In short: Officer friendly might not seem so friendly after all!
Why Do Law Firms Advice That You Remain Silent After An Arrest?
The best advice that any attorney can give you is to remain silent when being questioned or investigated by law enforcement officers. Wait until you have contacted an experienced Texas criminal defense lawyer at the Law Offices of McCarty-Larson before talking with police, as they will be able to advise on what steps should next be taken and whether it’s worth even speaking up in response to their questions.
Police often take advantage of a suspect’s vulnerability, and try to get them off guard or nervous in order to make it easier for the police. They want you talking while they’re trying to gather your thoughts and consult legal counsel so that they can leverage possible criminal charges against you which would allow them what they really want.
When Should I Hire A Criminal Defense Lawyer After An Arrest?
You don’t want to be sitting in a jail cell for an extended period of time. The first thing you should do is contact the Law Offices of McCarty-Larson, where we have over 50 years of experience defending people who are falsely accused and arrested unfairly. We know how important it is to make sure that your next steps happen quickly so give us a call at (972) 775-2100 or fill out our form on this site as soon as possible
An Attorney Can Help You Maintain Your Innocence Until You’re Proven Guilty
When you are charged with a crime, the prosecutor must present evidence that proves your guilt beyond all reasonable doubt in order to convict you. Being arrested is not enough for conviction and it doesn’t mean they have proved their case already! Don’t give up hope: just remember there’s always room for innocence until proven guilty.
What Questions Should You Ask A Criminal Defense Attorney Before Hiring Him or Her?
The question on everyone’s minds when charged with a crime is “How can I find the best criminal defense attorneys around me?”
The best way to find one is by asking them about their practice areas. It’s important that the lawyer you choose only practices in this field and not just occasionally does it as well. You also want an experienced attorney who has represented clients like yours before, so be sure to ask your potential candidate how long they’ve been practicing law and what kinds of cases they have handled previously. Knowing judges’ names would help too because if he knows these people then he should know his chances at getting dismissed or winning against charges better than others without any legal experience under their belt!
What Do Defense Attorneys Charge?
When figuring out how to choose a criminal defense attorney for your case, consider the cost. Unfortunately, it is difficult to estimate exactly what an average lawyer will charge because each situation can be different and unique. But you should never enter into any agreements with lawyers before discussing costs – we offer free initial consultations! During these meetings, our teams will discuss fees in more detail after learning about charges against you at no obligation or commitment on either side of the table.”
Criminal defense attorneys can offer clients payment plans, but not all do. Be sure to ask before you decide on an attorney!
