Do I need to hire an attorney if I plan on pleading guilty?

| by

Regardless of whether you plan on pleading guilty or innocent, you should hire a criminal defense lawyer to protect you. Representing yourself in court is NEVER a good idea. The prosecution will see you have no criminal defense experience and will bring the harshest penalties possible in criminal cases. One of our Los Angeles criminal defense lawyers can work with you to get a lighter sentence, minimize – or completely void criminal charges.
