A person who is facing criminal charges in the United States still has rights. If you have been accused of committing a crime, that means you are entitled to mount a defense. The problem for most defendants is that they do not have extensive knowledge of the criminal justice system. Even if you have been convicted for previous offenses, it doesn’t mean you are equipped to represent yourself in court.

The stakes in a criminal matter are often high. Consequences may include fines, loss of a driving license and the potential of serving time in prison. If defendants were not entitled to representation, the criminal justice process would not be fair. A dedicated criminal defense lawyer can passionately defend the rights of the accused individual.
