Why do you need a criminal defense lawyer by your side?
You are better off hiring an attorney to defend you when facing criminal charges. It is never a good idea to represent yourself in a criminal case. The law is far more complex than most people think, and having a skilled criminal defense attorney at your side causes the court to take your defense seriously. Courts will afford no special treatment to defendants representing themselves.
