Criminal Defense

If you are facing criminal charges, you may be wondering whether you need a lawyer to defend you. The answer is: YES! A good criminal defense attorney can (and usually will) make a significant difference in the outcome of your case.


First, a criminal defense attorney can protect your rights throughout the criminal process. The criminal process is a complex and often intimidating system of rules and procedures that govern how a case is handled from arrest to trial to appeal. You DO NOT want to navigate that process alone. A criminal defense attorney knows the law and can advise you of your rights and options at every stage and, just as importantly, will be by your side from start to finish. Our skilled lawyers can also challenge any unlawful or improper actions by the police, the prosecutor, or the court that may violate your constitutional rights.


Second, legal counsel will often be able to help you obtain the best possible result for your case. The attorneys at Helmkamp, Ellis, Abraham & Engerer can negotiate with the prosecutor to reduce or dismiss the charges against you, usually reducing your sentence, or perhaps even avoiding a conviction altogether! A criminal defense attorney can also prepare your case for trial, if necessary, and present a strong defense before a judge or jury. It is also crucial to have an attorney to assist you with any post-conviction issues, such as appeals, expungements, or parole.


Finally, a criminal defense attorney can provide you with emotional and practical support during a stressful and difficult time. Facing criminal charges can be overwhelming and frightening, especially if you are innocent or have never been in trouble before. Our attorneys are understanding and compassionate and can help you cope with the anxiety and uncertainty that come with being accused of a crime.


If you find yourself in the unenviable position of being charged with a crime, do not hesitate: call our office TODAY to speak with an attorney about your case and get the peace of mind you need to move forward.
