Why Is A Good Defense Lawyer’s Help So Imperative?

Don’t try to act as your own attorney. Far too much is at risk. Misdemeanors, for example, are considered less serious crimes than felonies, but some California misdemeanor convictions can send a defendant to jail for up to a year.

In any criminal case, you must have an experienced defense lawyer advocating on your behalf.

As you know, before you can be convicted of any crime, a prosecutor must prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Attorney Jerry Nicholson will review the details of the charge and find the weak point in the state’s case against you.

In a DUI case, for example, he might dispute the breathalyzer test results. In a drug case, he might challenge the legality of the search. If a domestic violence allegation against you has been fabricated or exaggerated, he will cast doubt on that allegation.
