Despite how well-educated you are, the criminal justice system is an impossible contender when you represent yourself as a defendant. What you need is an experienced attorney to lend their expertise in representing you in your case.
Criminal defense lawyers do much more than simply question witnesses in court. For example, defense attorneys:
-Are familiar with imperative legal rules.
-Help defendants cope with the feelings of fear, embarrassment, and anxiety.
-Negotiate deals with prosecutors, often arranging for reduced charges and lesser sentences.
-Formulate sentencing programs tailored to a client’s specific needs, often helping defendants avoid future brushes with the criminal justice system.
-Are familiar with local court procedures that are not written down anywhere.
-Recognize the possible hidden consequences of pleading guilty which a self-represented person may fail to discover.
-Gather information from prosecution witnesses effectivity.
