Personally Guiding You Through Your Charges
We understand that for many clients, this is the first time they are facing the legal system. Whether or not you have been through it, the experience is no less scary. Have our team guide you through the confusing court system so you know exactly what to expect and your rights at all times.
If you've been charged with a felony, you will generally have to go through three different phases:
- The first is the arraignment, where you will appear in court and be issued a statement of the charges that are being made against you; this is where you will plead guilty or not guilty. At this point, you may be taken into custody or let out on bail.
- Following the arraignment, your lawyer will attempt to resolve the case with the prosecutor by reaching a plea bargain. An exemplary understanding of the law and felony cases in the United States is paramount when it comes to getting the best outcome at this stage. A good lawyer will not only understand your case, but also be able to see the type of case that the prosecutor is trying to make against you. This understanding and information allows your lawyer to know exactly what the prosecutor is after and how to turn that into something positive for you.
- If plea bargains are unsuccessful, you will have to face trial: this will include a hearing before a judge to determine probable cause, a second arraignment, additional attempts to resolve the case outside of the courtroom and, finally, a trial by jury.
Our Firm Is Here for You
The truth of the matter is this is terrifying for anyone, no matter what the crime or whether you're guilty. With any felony case, it is not just about proving innocence: it's about creating doubt in the prosecution's case. After all, the United States justice system still holds itself to the standard of "innocent until proven guilty."
An excellent lawyer, like the ones at The Kyle Law Firm, will poke holes in the prosecution's case while simultaneously setting up a strong defense for you, giving you the best possible chance of winning.
