You may not know when you might come across a situation that would put you behind the bars, or in the hands of cops. Whether you are a culprit or not, you do want to protect yourself from the torturous treatment that one might face behind the grills. Maybe you are not a criminal by habit, but have committed a crime out of the situation, or have fallen victim to the situation or conspiracy, the first thing you should do in any such situation is to contact a criminal attorney.
If you are facing criminal charges, do not hesitate to contact a criminal attorney who fully understands how to protect your rights.
A few months ago, one of the friends of mine in Miami was caught in a war between two gangs. He was from neither of the sides. He was just crossing the road and saw the site changed into a war field suddenly. He saw another passer-by in trouble and in an attempt to protect that stranger, he had to strangle one of the gang members. It hardly took few minutes when whistles were blowing. Those who were experienced criminals ran away from the site but my friend stayed there helping the other injured men get up and get well.
He was found on the site and picked by the police without allowing him a word. What could the poor guy do? He kept pleading to the cops to leave him and let him go as he had nothing to do with the gang war but there was no one to listen to him. He was subjected to a corner on the wooden bench and police started preparing records. Fortunately, he got a chance to call me and narrate the story within few seconds before his cell was also snatched and seized. I was in my office at that time.
I consulted my boss who had got a friendly and helpful nature. He suggested to me a criminal defense lawyer, who happened to be his friend then, and asked me to rush to the police station immediately before they book my friend as a culprit. I followed the suite.
What can a Good Criminal Lawyer Do?
The criminal lawyer I contacted took few minutes to prepare some papers with my information and accompanied me to the police station. He talked to the police officers, presented some documents, got both of us to sign some documents, and got us out of the police station unscathed.
He told me that my friend could have gone behind the wars for at least 3 months had we not reached there on time. That was the day I realized the importance of a criminal lawyer, no matter what the case is.
The case continued for 3 months. All the culprits were caught. My friend was later converted to a public witness and was then relieved of the case without any obligation. Since then I have always been keeping contact numbers of the criminal lawyer along with me.
There are many reputed criminal lawyers in Miami. There are many running their offices online through their websites. There you can get information about the company, their experience, and everything you might need to know before hiring one.
