What Does a Criminal Defense Lawyer Do?

At our appointment you should first bring paperwork stating what the charges are against you. Also bring any proof that you have that helps your case, a list of names of people who can testify for you, and a written account of what happened in your own words. This will also assist the us to give you a straight answer about your chances of winning your case.

The next step is then to go over the events with us. It is important that you are completely honest with your answers and that you do not try and hide anything during this process. Hiding information will usually backfire later, and will very likely cost you in court.

Be prepared to go over your story, the events that have happened, and everything involved with the case multiple times. We and the court will tell you when your court date is, what information you need, and will keep track of any documents that have been given to the state as well. DWI cases for example in Austin, your licence can be affected. You may need a drivers license lawyer in Austin Tx for that issue. We handle those issues as well, such as occupational driver’s licenses.

What Does Going to Trial Mean?

If you may have rejected a plea offer or never were offered a plea, it leaves only a trial to resolve your case. This will be in front of a judge or jury. You can do what’s called an open plea to the judge of jury. But the state has to waive a jury trial if you want only the judge to decide. This is still a trial. It will require entering evidence and testimony from witnesses. We prepare every case for a possible trial. If we do not need a trial at least we were prepared.

What Happens When I Accept a Plea Bargain?

We will find out if a plea agreement is the best direction. But only after deciding if you are actually guilty or could have some responsibility in your case. We will talk about what an agreement will actually mean and how much risk you can save by agreeing to any plea bargains before you sign. Once you sign, you are bound to the terms of that agreement.
