Defending Criminal Allegations
Whether guilty or innocent, everyone charged with a crime needs a criminal defense lawyer to begin working on the case as soon as possible. This is because the initial investigation into a case can oftentimes determine the eventual outcome. If you have been arrested or notified of pending criminal charges, it is imperative that you contact a Cobb County Criminal Defense Attorney or Marietta Criminal Defense Attorney immediately.
Investigating cases involves interviewing witnesses, obtaining police reports and other records, visiting and documenting alleged crime scenes and reviewing the physical evidence, among other things. As people's memories fade and evidence gets stale over time, investigating upfront can and will uncover favorable information for the defendant.
After investigating, a Cobb County Criminal Defense Attorney like Ben will analyze what defenses are available in your case. Each and every case is different, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to criminal defense.
Ben is a Marietta Criminal Defense Lawyer that is well-respected by the prosecutors. This means that he can go to bat for his clients at the early stages of the case, which can lead to dismissal of charges and/or reduction in charges.
Many people who feel like they have been falsely accused of committing a crime believe that the truth will eventually set them free and, therefore, they do not need legal representation. This is false and is a dangerous approach to take to criminal charges. The prosecutor will not sit down with you and listen to your side of the story or look at your evidence. Your lawyer instead has to be your mouthpiece.
