The Katz & Phillips Difference

Huffington Post reports that many drug defendants are being essentially forced to plead guilty to their charges because of a fear of harsh sentencing due to mandatory minimum sentencing laws. Procedural issues like what a prosecutor decides to charge you with, as well as strict rules for how evidence is presented, can make it difficult for you to get the fair trial that you are entitled to under the U.S. Constitution.

Protecting your rights in the criminal justice system requires a comprehensive understanding of the criminal code, the rules of criminal procedure and the rules of evidence. Hiring an attorney allows you to get advice from someone who knows the system and who can fight to make sure it is not rigged against you. There are never any guarantees when it comes to facing criminal charges, but your lawyer will do everything possible to help avoid conviction or reduce possible penalties.

Depending upon the circumstances of your case, a defense lawyer can help you in many ways when you’ve been accused of a crime in Lake Wales. Katz & Phillips, P.A. attorneys can:

  • Advise you on options after arrest
  • Be there when police question you to help you avoid saying something incriminating
  • Ensure your Fourth and Fifth Amendment rights against illegal searches and self-incrimination are protected
  • Negotiate a plea bargain on your behalf with the prosecutor
  • Help you raise defenses or introduce doubt if your case goes to trial

You have the right to a lawyer in the U.S. justice system for a reason: because having an attorney makes sure you get due process before conviction. Our lawyers take our job in defending you seriously and we will be there for you every step of the way when you face your charges.
