Do I Need An Attorney To Defend A Disorderly Conduct Charge?

For something as minor as a disorderly conduct charge, you may think you 
can represent yourself and you don't need a defense attorney by your 
side. The truth is, you couldn't be more wrong. Even something as minor 
as disorderly conduct can stay on your record for years, and with 
employers looking for virtually any reason to narrow down their pool of 
candidates for a job opening, you really can't afford to have any 
strikes against you.

Having a defense attorney can help you build a defense that could result 
in a Not Guilty finding, or in even having the charges dismissed. Also, 
an attorney could negotiate with the prosecution to have you enroll in a 
drug and alcohol or anger management program which could result, upon 
successful completion of the program, in the charges being dismissed. If 
you live in Burlington, Essex, Colchester, Winooski, Williston, 
Shelburne or anywhere in the State of Vermont, and have been arrested or 
charged with DUI or any crime, call Handy Law for aggressive and 
experienced legal defense.
