When Should You Hire A Criminal Defense Attorney?

You need to hire a criminal defense lawyer if there are charges against you that could result in you doing jail time. When you hire an attorney for your crime earlier in the process, it puts you in a reasonable place to save money on legal fees and help put together a defensive representation.

Being charged with a crime is scary. Suddenly, you have prosecutors and law enforcement doing everything they can to paint you as a villain and make sure you suffer the full penalty of the law. During our initial consultation, our criminal defense team will review the charges and evidence filed against you to help you better tell your side of the story. Our Alpharetta criminal defense lawyer maintains effective relationships with other legal professionals and personnel throughout the Alpharetta area, and we can leverage them for your benefit as needed.

With a former prosecutor on your side, you will have a better understanding of the strategies being used against you. Brian Hansford Law can help plan a strong case in your favor and keep you updated throughout the entire legal process. Your rights and freedom are our priority. Call now to schedule your confidential consultation and begin planning a case to preserve your name and reputation in Alpharetta, GA.

Don't Leave Anything to Chance
