Many individuals attempt to represent themselves in court when arrested to save on legal fees. However, while it’s your legal right to represent yourself, it is a risky venture, and you could actually end up in jail.
Here are some reasons why you shouldn’t represent yourself in a criminal trial.
- You may stand to lose more than the cost of a criminal attorney, e.g., being wrongly convicted
- You are not in the best state of mind because of anxiety and fear
- The legal system can be complex and confusing to understand and navigate
Therefore, it’s vital to hire a criminal attorney for your case since they understand the law and can help in reducing your charges. Contact us at O’Dekirk, Allred, and Associates today for legal representation.
