Some people try to represent themselves after being arrested. They may have had a bad experience with an attorney or worry that they can’t afford a Portland Defense Lawyer. Generally speaking, this is a bad idea that produces sub-optimal outcomes for the defendant. Before trying to defend yourself in court, contact Kroll & Johnson for a free consultation to learn how an attorney will work for you.
Free Consultations Explained by a Portland Defense Lawyer
Many people become defensive when they hear the term “free.” Some people worry that this “free consultation” will result in them being given the hard-sell for services and feeling pressured to sign a contract with an attorney. This is not the case. The Oregon rules of ethics prevent a Portland Defense Lawyer from pressuring a potential client into signing any contract or forcing them to sign any agreements. Instead, this really will be a free consultation where a defendant can learn more about the charges they face, the potential consequences of conviction, and how exactly the attorney will provide representation.
Even if a defendant ultimately chooses to defend themselves, by taking advantage of the free consultation they can be sure they are making the right decision for themselves and their family. They can also get some information about what to expect from their conviction, how it may impact their life, and other invaluable information. Before simply pleading guilty or walking into a courtroom expecting to handle this all by yourself, speak with an attorney who can answer some questions about your charges.
