Do I Really Need An Attorney? I Can Make A Deal On My Own.

Yes, you do have the right to represent yourself in a court of law. Our constitution guarantees that. However, if you represent yourself you are not doing yourself any favors. The law is a complex entity, much like medicine or engineering. Would you trust yourself to give yourself open heart surgery?

In terms of your freedom, it is not an exaggerated metaphor. Prosecutors like to get convictions and police like charges to stick. Neither of them are your friend and they will certainly not do you any favors. There are many factors in any criminal case that can lead to favorable outcomes for the defendant. You need someone on your side who knows the law and can represent you fully and faithfully.

To ensure that you get the best outcome possible for your case, contact The Law Office of C Jordan Handy for aggressive and experienced legal defense if you live in Burlington, Essex, Colchester, Winooski, Williston, Shelburne or anywhere in the State of Vermont.
