)-- The Longton Law Offices is pleased to announce that it offers a free initial consultation to its clients who have been charged with a crime in the state of Michigan. The firm believes that everyone has a right to know what they are facing when they have been arrested and charged with any type of illegal activity. By offering a free consultation to their clients, the Longton Law Offices are able to give their best legal advice to those who need it the most and need that advice fast.
It is important for Michigan citizens to understand that they have certain rights under the law when they are facing criminal charges. These rights are in place to protect citizens and to ensure that everyone is treated fairly. The problem is many people who have been charged with a crime do not know their rights or know how to insist that those rights be respected. This is why it is so important to work with an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as one is charged with a crime. This includes DUI - driving while intoxicated.
It is your right to present the strongest legal defense against the charges that you may be facing. An experienced criminal defense lawyer will know how to put your case together so that it can be presented to the prosecution or to the court, if the case goes all the way to court. Your criminal defense attorney can offer important advice as to what course of action you have available and what the consequences may be if you are found guilty. He or she can also advise you on whether or not a plea bargain is possible which can often result in less punishment or a reduction in the charges.
A common mistake that many people make when they are charged with a crime is thinking that they have to go it alone or that they have to enter into a plea deal with the prosecution. Neither of these is true. Anyone charged with a crime, especially any type of felony, should seek legal help as soon as possible. This should be done before answering any questions asked by the authorities. And, no one should ever agree to a plea deal until they have spoken with an experienced criminal defense lawyer as changing your mind later on and trying to get out of the deal can be very difficult. The better option in both of these instances is to speak with a criminal defense attorney first.
For those who find themselves being charged with a crime, do not let the authorities intimidate you. You have rights and the criminal defense lawyers at the Longton Law Offices are ready to help. Those charged can now take advantage of the firm's free legal consultation offer and get the information that they need in order to proceed. Keep in mind that the police and the prosecution will work hard to convict those charged with crimes, you need someone working just as hard on your behalf if you want the best possible resolution to your case.
