Criminal defendants, as you travel through life you often hear the old adage, "you get what you pay for". This is never more true than when you find yourself charged with committing a crime. In this woeful economy, more and more criminal defendants are turning to lawyers to represent them who have little or no criminal law experience. And the results can be disasterous! Criminal lawyers, those who regularly practice criminal law, understand the nuances of the charges and also the ways to provide you with the best representation.
