Why a criminal lawyer can help
Just because you are not in court doesn't mean that you can't benefit from the help of a criminal lawyer. For example, while investigating police will usually observe interview formalities and ensure that the minimum level of warnings is given to a person who takes part in a police interview, there a number of situations where it may not be in your interest to answer some questions. In addition, the assistance of a solicitor is vital in securing favourable bail conditions, so that you will not be required to remain in custody until your matter comes before the court. Also, consider that many people are often placed in a position where they are encouraged to plead guilty even if they haven't necessarily broken the law.

Additionally, Stacks Collins Thompson's criminal lawyers ensure that you understand any charges against you and make a fully informed decision when choosing how to plead to a charge.
