Why is it important to hire a criminal defense lawyer?
Criminal charges come with serious and severe consequences. If you have been arrested for Drunk Driving or DUI and are found guilty, you will very likely be facing a license suspension, and the use of an ignition interlock device after that. If you are arrested for any type of a violent crime (including domestic violence or any assault charges) you can be disqualified from future employment opportunities and be ineligible for certain housing. Obviously, any criminal charge can lead to fines, jail time and loss of current or future employment potential.
Being charged with a crime is very different than being found guilty
It's common for people who have been charged with a crime to think that being found guilty is a foregone conclusion. The truth is, regardless of what you did or did not do, it is the prosecutions responsibility to prove that you did what they said you did. You truly are innocent until it's proven that you were guilty. This is why it's so important to get an attorney involved as soon as possible so that you do not end up giving the police more information and become the star witness against yourself!
Do not make the mistake of telling the police or prosecutors more than they need to know. Rely on the experience and guidance of Edward W. Vioni to work towards the best possible outcome for your criminal defense case.
How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Criminal Defense Lawyer?
The initial consultation is free. You will have a clear idea of how much you will pay, and how far in your defense that cost will take you. While hiring a lawyer is often a financial burden for people charged with a crime, it's important to remember that NOT hiring a lawyer can have higher and further reaching costs. Limited employment opportunities, drivers' license suspension and revocation, higher insurance premiums, limited opportunities for rental properties or other contracts that require a background check, fines and jail are just some of the potential penalties if you are found guilty. Don't let a simple mistake haunt you for the rest of your life. Rely on the experienced criminal defense of Edward W. Vioni.
