Importance of Hiring a Felony Attorney Right Away
You may have the choice to represent yourself, have a public defender appointed, or hire your own attorney. Under no circumstances should you ever choose to represent yourself in any criminal case. This is true even if you are certain of your innocence. Florida criminal law and procedures are incredibly complex, and one mistake could land you behind bars and lead to the revocation of other freedoms.
There are some public defenders who are skilled and knowledgeable, but there’s a reason why people hire a private attorney when they can afford one. When you hire a private felony lawyer, you can expect their full attention to be focused on your case. Many public defenders have an excessive caseload and therefore may not be able to invest the time and attention that your case deserves.
The best time to speak with a felony attorney in Palm Beach Gardens is immediately after the arrest. You should not provide the police with any statements whatsoever. If you do, what you say could inadvertently weaken your defense. Police interrogators are very adept at getting suspects to provide damning statements, and this can eve happen when the suspect is innocent.
Todd A. Kawecki can handle all correspondence with the police, compile evidence, review the facts of your case, and design a defense strategy tailored to your unique situation. There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all defense strategy. You need a felony attorney who has seen it all and will know the best approach to take given the facts of your case. This is exactly what you can expect as a client of Kawecki Law.
