How A Criminal Defense Attorney Can Help You

McKay Law FirmNo matter what criminal charges you are facing — from drug crimes to sexual offenses, misdemeanor charges or felony charges — you are always entitled to legal representation in the court of law. Unfortunately, many people choose not to consult with a criminal defense attorney, often due to the belief that there is not much a lawyer can do to reduce the sentence.

McKay Law Firm in Little Rock represents those accused of any crime in Arkansas. We firmly believe that hiring a law firm to defend you is in your best interest, whether or not we are that law firm. Targets of the criminal justice system are often the most vulnerable, and without representation, your rights could be infringed upon.

How A Criminal Defense Attorney Can Help You

While experienced representation can reduce or eliminate the charges against you, it can also prevent you from facing even worse charges than you already are. The biggest benefits of hiring an experienced criminal defense lawyer include:

  • Preventing you from incriminating yourself. Far too often, people will prepare a statement on their case and incriminate themselves even further, exasperating the problem. We will remind you of all your rights and work with you to ensure that you take all the proper steps in your case.
  • Ensuring fair treatment by law enforcement. Police and prosecutors use tactics to prove your guilt that can be questionable under the law and sometimes even illegal. A criminal defense attorney can protect your rights and hold law enforcement officers accountable for their actions, preventing them from taking advantage of you.
  • Providing knowledgeable insight on laws and statutes. It's impossible to know the full extent of the law and how it applies to your case without a knowledgeable attorney to guide you. We have a breadth of knowledge in various local, state and federal laws and statutes and can provide unique insight to help reduce or eliminate the charges against you.
  • Familiarity with the local justice system. As your case goes to trial, you may be up against prosecutors, police officers, judges and other local officials whom you have never met. As experienced criminal defense attorneys, we are familiar with these parties and may have worked against them before. We can construct a defense strategy that is tailored for your case and the specific prosecutors and judges you are facing.
