Why Early Intervention Is Critical
If you were running a race, would you let your opponent have a head start? Of course not. Doing so would force you to work harder to win or prevent you from winning at all. The odds would certainly be stacked against you.
The same is true in a criminal defense case. If you wait to start building your case, you are essentially giving your opponent a head start. Law enforcement and prosecutors will use this time to gather evidence and refine the strategy that they will use against you in hopes of obtaining a conviction. Every day you wait, it becomes more difficult to catch up and even the odds. With so much at stake, why would you let this happen?
When Should You Hire A Lawyer?
There is no such thing as hiring a lawyer too soon. Even if you have not been charged with a crime, a lawyer can help you. In fact, if you are under investigation or have been questioned in relation to a criminal offense, early intervention could prevent charges from being filed against you or lead to reduced charges.
