I spend most of my time, every day of the week, sitting in court rooms all across the state. Every day I notice people making the same, horrible, mistake without even knowing it at first.
Many people walk into courtrooms without having hired an attorney. When I talk to my friends about this they say that I am just trying to drum up business for the defense bar, but that is far from the case.
While I would love for you to hire our firm, I would also like you not to suffer unnecessary consequences – such as a conviction or prison sentence.
For whatever reason many people have come to the conclusion that they can go into court, plea no contest, throw themselves on the mercy of the court and have the judge take mercy on them.
In the vast majority of important cases: drug cases, DUI charges, murders, sex cases, rapes, etc. There are mandatory requirements that the just must follow even if even they do not want to.
For instance, if you are charged with a DUI and it is your first offense you must be confined for at least 6 days in many cases. This is a requirement, the judge has no power to avoid it. In drug cases you can lose your license for up to five years.
