helping law enforcement protect the community

Do you know what is being done in your community to protect the citizens from crime? Do you have a crime-watch program? Is there a community website that lists the current investigations and events that may have recently occurred? Law enforcement officials can only do so much when it comes to protecting a community. If your community is not active in protecting itself, crime rates could rise and many residents could find themselves the target or victim of crimes. Visit my blog to find out what you can do as a community to lower crime rates and help the law enforcement officials do their jobs.

Law Blog

If you're facing something as severe as a felony, it's not something you will want to do alone. Felony charges are taken very seriously in the court of law and the last thing you will want to do is mess up in front of a judge. Luckily, you can hire a felony lawyer to help you through your case. 

What Is a Felony?

A felony is a crime that is considered serious. They oftentimes are violent crimes, but it's possible to receive a felony charge for a nonviolent crime as well. 

Examples of felonies include:

  • Murder
  • Rape
  • Arson
  • Kidnapping
  • Burglary
  • Forgery
  • Fraud

If you're charged with a felony, depending on the seriousness of the crime and your record prior to the crime, you could face anywhere from probation up to life in prison. Most crimes involving a victim will receive a harsher sentence.

What Is a Felony Lawyer?

A felony lawyer is the type of lawyer you can hire to represent you when you are facing felony charges. This lawyer will have experience in serious-crime cases and in intense and stressful courtrooms. These lawyers will stay up to date on any laws that surround felony charges. They are your best chance at getting you out of or lowering felony charges. 

What Does a Felony Lawyer Do?

Your lawyer will do everything they can to get your charges dropped or decreased. They will always be in the courtroom with you so you will never have to worry about being in front of a judge or jury without representation. 

Other things a felony lawyer can do for you include:

  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Investigating the crime scene or police reports
  • Reaching out to professionals (e.g. doctor or coroner)
  • Provide legal advice
  • Questioning police about arrest procedure
  • Analyze evidence
  • Jury selection
  • Negotiate plea bargains

Your lawyer will always be on the lookout for holes in the prosecution's case against you. They will also try to use loopholes to their advantage to get the charges dropped or any evidence that may hurt your case thrown out. It's important to remember that you should never hide any details from your attorney. Even if something may look incriminating, your lawyer will need to know so that if/when the prosecution finds out there are no surprises for your lawyer. 

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Felony Lawyer?

The cost of a felony lawyer will range between $10,000 to $100,000 with the average cost sitting at $35,000. The more serious the crime, the more expensive the cost will be because it means more time and work for your lawyer.
