There is no such thing as a small criminal case. Any criminal conviction can result in devastating consequences, including prison/jail, fines, loss of license, probation, community service and difficulty finding employment. If you are not a United States Citizen, certain criminal convictions can result in deportation or other immigration consequences.
It's important to have a skilled criminal defense attorney in your corner at the earliest phase possible. Many citizens, especially those who have never been accused of a crime before, tend to think that if they talk to the police and explain the situation, everything will work itself out. Unfortunately, this could not be further from the truth. All too often, it is a defendants own "explanation" that is used against him or her.
The conssitution affords you the right to an attorney in criminal cases for a reason. Exercise your right to counsel as soon as you are charged, or have reason to believe you are the target of an investigation.
