The worst possible thing you can do for yourself when facing a criminal charge is wait to hire a lawyer. When the police come to talk to you, they are not on your side. Their sole job is to gather information to charge you with as many crimes as possible and they are very good at their job. The same goes for family law. The longer you wait to talk to a skilled attorney, the worse your situation will get. Waiting to talk to an attorney only means you are harming yourself.
Whether you have been charged with a crime or are facing a family law matter, the outcome of the case can have a negative impact on the rest of your life. When dealing with issues of such importance, it is vital to have an attorney who will fight for your rights.
