What Should I Do if I Am Charged With A Crime in Portage Crime

The most important thing to do when you are charged with a crime in Portage County, whether a felony or misdemeanor, is to get legal help immediately. Most people caught up in the criminal offense system have little or no fundamental understanding of the law or how it works, even less of the criminal justice system. It can be very overwhelming and feel very bleak and hopeless. It is manufactured to make you feel that way. “Abandon all hope, ye who enter here” could be the motto. Very few cases are as black and white or open and shut as they seem. There are frequently more options available to defendants than they realize, and a qualified criminal defense attorney can help find them. Do not give into despair. Be proactive. Your future is worth fighting. Take action fast.

What Qualities Should I Look For in a Criminal Defense Attorney?

There are many criminal defense attorneys to choose from, and you want to make sure you choose a team that has your back from day one. Some aspects to consider are:

  • Reputation- research the background of the team working for you. Find out what sort of reputation the firm has in the community. For example, Weisenburger Law Firm, LLC has twenty years of experience serving Portage County residents.
  • Personal Attention- The last thing you want to experience from your defense team is that you are “just a number” among many clients. You need to know that your team is on your side from day one and knows your case.
  • Constant Support- You deserve the undivided support of your legal team. At Weisenburger Law Firm, LLC, you will have your attorney’s undivided attention and a paralegal assigned to your case.
