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.
