Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer
Being accused of a crime makes for a confusing and very upsetting time. You may wonder what your next step should be and whether or not you need legal representation to help you. Unfortunately, some defendants feel that they should take the consequences and not establish a defense if they are guilty. The fact is that there may be factors in the case that allow for a reduction in the charges or something may have gone wrong during search and seizure or the arrest process that could result in case dismissal. Until a Minnesota criminal attorney reviews your case, it is difficult to tell what the possible outcomes could be.
So the first thing you want to do is contact your attorney for a free consultation before saying anything to law enforcement. Remember that anything you say or do could be used against you in court. By not saying anything and requesting to speak to your attorney, you are protecting yourself against self-incrimination.

Fighting For Your Future
When you have a skilled Minnesota criminal defense lawyer by your side throughout the entire process, you have a powerful advocate fighting for your future. Even when you are guilty, there may be factors in the case that warrant reduced charges. Reduced charges mean that the consequences will be less than the maximum penalties. In other words, you can move forward sooner. At the same time, you want to have the consequences reduced as much as possible since a criminal record can have an impact on anything that requires a background check, such as a job or finding a place to live. When you receive the best possible outcome, you have a greater chance of living a productive life and putting past mistakes behind you. If you are innocent or the facts in the case prove that the charges should be dropped, you can avoid a criminal record.
