avoid criminal chargesThe justice system can be intimidating. Whether you are innocent or are facing large charges for something you did, finding the right legal representation is the first step. But how do you know they are on the right track once they have been hired? You have hired them for their expertise but it is important to understand whether you are getting to the best defense for your case or have hired the wrong lawyer. Even further, understanding what makes a good defense can aid your criminal defense lawyer in their specific strategy since you will know your own case better than anyone else.

However, there are some charges that should be avoided at all costs. A good legal strategy will look at the charges and attempt to lower or get rid of the following:

  • Fraud/Economic: White collar crimes account for much of criminal charges. They include money laundering along with federal and bankruptcy fraud, and identity theft. Unsurprisingly, these crimes often have heavy consequences attached to them.
  • Substance Abuse: Alcohol and drug crimes are typically classified as felonies and misdemeanors, which can impact the course of your life including finding work and places to live. Even a favorable outcome to a drug-related crime can have major impacts.
  • Property: Assault, including domestic, along with burglary, arson and larceny, along with other infractions committed on public or private property have major implications for the defendant. This is because other laws involving the location also arise, leading to further charges.

If you have already committed one of these crimes, be sure to talk with your lawyer about lower the charges. The main component of the criminal defense strategy for these crimes should focus on ridding your criminal history of these charges. In a lot of cases, you can take a plea bargain that will put lesser charges on your record. This can lead to bigger financial consequences but will have less of an impact on your future.
