When to Contact a Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer

Nothing is more important than picking up the phone and contacting a criminal defense attorney after being accused of or arrested on a criminal charge. Even if you haven’t been arrested yet and the police are simply investigating their suspicions, it is in your best interest to pursue legal counsel as soon as you are able to.

At the Law Office of Nayib Hassan, we know that bargaining for lesser charges is often not in the best interest of the client. Many prosecutors will put the pressure on in order to secure a guilty plea, often leading the accused into believing that there’s no way they will be found innocent in a court of law. However, our clients often stand the best chance of being proven innocent or having the charges dropped if we proceed with a trial.

We’ll investigate the evidence available in your case and will exhaust every possible resource in order to put together a strong, compelling defense that meets the prosecution at every turn. We will fight zealously for your rights under the law, regardless of the crime you have been charged with.

Don’t wait to get legal help if you or someone you love have been arrested for a crime or have been accused of committing a crime. Contact Law Office of Nayib Hassan today for a consultation to discuss the details of your case and to determine what the next best step should be.
