Dallas, Oct. 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Dallas, Texas –
Chris Lewis & Associates, P.C., a law firm based in Dallas, TX, wants to highlight the services offered by their criminal defense lawyers for individuals who have been charged of a criminal offense in Dallas and in the state of Texas. They are capable of handling all kinds of criminal cases. Some of the common types of criminal charges are: alcohol-related offenses, including DWIs and DUIs; juvenile offenses; drug crimes; jail release; weapons crimes; probation violation; theft-related crimes: white collar crimes; sex crimes; and violent offenses.
Chris Lewis says, “A criminal conviction has the potential to destroy every area of your life. Fight for your life’s future happiness and defend your civil rights by partnering with a Dallas criminal defense lawyer. It is more than possible to get justice and beat a criminal charge with professional legal representation from a dedicated Dallas criminal defense lawyer at our law firm.”
In Dallas, the court will inform the accused that they will be appointing a lawyer if they are unable to afford one. If the accused can’t afford a lawyer, the court will then examine their income and expenses to determine if they qualify for a court-appointed lawyer or not. The court will also ask the accused if they plead guilty or not to the charges. Chris Lewis says, “If you haven’t had time to consult with a defense lawyer regarding what to do, you may need to ask the court for more time. It’s important to discuss the charges, defense to these charges, and the likelihood of you winning the case with your attorney. Only after discussing with an attorney should you enter a plea.” More about this can be gleaned from https://www.lewisdefense.com/dallas-criminal-defense-lawyer/.
They advise those who have been arrested and accused of a crime to contact a criminal defense lawyer as soon as they are booked in jail. It is also important not to provide the authorities details aside from basic identifying information like one’s name. This is vital because details stated may be used against the accused. If they insist on asking questions, it is advisable to simply request for the presence of one’s lawyer. It is also advisable to be respectful and cooperate with their requests while asserting one’s right to remain silent and get connected to a lawyer as soon as possible.
Chris Lewis explains, “Once you’ve spoken with a Dallas criminal defense lawyer, you should be booked and released in the time between your arrest and your day in court. During this time, your lawyer can help you gather evidence and build a strong defense for your case.”
Felony convictions have harsh legal penalties, including years in prison and substantial fines. They also want to emphasize that even misdemeanors can have negative impacts on the lives those who get convicted. Chris Lewis says, “Many employers do care about misdemeanor offenses, and being convicted for one of these crimes in Dallas is a serious legal issue that can affect your job and career prospects.”
