A Strong Trial Attorney Can Make The Difference

It is a common misconception that the best way to resolve criminal charges is to settle with the prosecution and avoid a trial. Sometimes a trial can be an expedient way of reaching a favorable outcome. However, the legal system is confusing, and many individuals who are facing a trial have questions.

At the Law Office of Andrew M. Liefer, we specialize in criminal defense, and founding attorney Andrew Liefer is able to answer those questions. Some of the most frequent questions we receive are listed below with answers.

Commonly Asked Questions, Answered

Will I have to go to trial?

It depends on the exact situation whether a trial is advantageous. However, you should not be scared of going to trial if you have an attorney who is skilled in the courtroom. Sometimes lawyers will try to settle because they themselves want to avoid a trial. Attorney Liefer, on the other hand, is not afraid of facing the other side directly and has a proven track record of success at trial.

How much will it cost?

Your particular needs will impact the cost, but a good attorney will offer you a straightforward estimate based on their evaluation of your situation, prior to hiring.

Can you help me?

Because our firm specializes in criminal defense, we help clients who are facing a very wide variety of charges. From traffic offenses to serious felony charges, attorney Liefer is capable of taking on any case.

Should I cooperate with the police if I’m not under investigation myself?

You may think that if police are merely questioning you in relation to someone else’s wrongdoing, you cannot lose anything by cooperating. This is not true. It is very easy for police to charge you with some sort of offense by association. Do not speak to the police without your own attorney.
