Sometimes cliches are true: “only a fool represents themselves.” That is generally the case! However, not all lawyers are created equally. Are you trying to decide whether you should hire a lawyer or not? We have three reasons why you should not hesitate in hiring an Arkansas Criminal Lawyer.
A Criminal Conviction Follows You Everywhere.
Getting your first felony on your record is something to avoid at all costs. If you do not have a record you need to spend whatever resources in money and time to avoid having that happen. Having a felony on your record can impact you in several ways:
- Voting Rights- If convicted of a felony, you must show that you have completed your sentence before you are able to vote again.
- Firearms Possession- This is a big one for our Arkansas clients. If you are convicted of a felony you will no longer be able to possess a firearm. If you are caught with one after a felony conviction that can result in state or federal prison time.
- Employment- A felony can severely limit your job prospects. Some studies have shown that over a lifetime a felony conviction can reduce your earning capacity dramatically.
- Student Aid/Housing- Your ability to get student aid or housing can also be affected by Arkansas drug crimes.
The cost of an Arkansas Criminal Lawyer pales compared to the lifetime of money you will lose out on if convicted of a felony. Even if you are not charged with a felony, many misdemeanors can impact employment as well. Even some misdemeanor offenses, if domestically related, can mean you lose your right to possess a gun!
An Arkansas Criminal Lawyer Can Evaluate Misconduct of the Police.
We have seen the news. We know that the police cheat and break the rules. But, no matter how much news you see as a non-Arkansas Criminal Lawyer you don’t have the training to make the police pay for their conduct. Good criminal defense lawyers spend years fighting to suppress unlawful stops and searches. Many examples of cops lying now proven!
there are countless other videos on Youtube of police lying. Attorneys know what police officers are allowed to do when investigating a client. If the evidence gathering was improper, the lawyer can get the evidence thrown out of your case and this can often lead to dismissals or drastically reduced charges.
