What A Seattle Defense Lawyer Can Do for You
There are a lot of things that an experienced attorney can do to help your case. First of all, they can ease you mind by explaining what your charges mean and what kind of process you can expect. Many people arrested for a criminal offense are filled with questions and worry how it will affect their job, ability to drive, child custody, etc. Attorney Karimi will sit down with you and answer all of your questions. He will also advise you of your defense options.
Even if you plan on pleading guilty to your charges, you may still want to consult with an experienced drug crime defense lawyer. In some cases, you might be advised to plead not guilty initially so that you can see if you are offered a plea bargain which would allow you to accept a reduced sentence in exchange for your guilty plea. A plea bargain is something that is offered by the State in order to avoid going to trial. It usually involves the suspect pleading guilty in exchange for a lighter sentence or reduced charges. It is up to the prosecutor to decide weather a bargain should be offered, but an experienced lawyer can often negotiate on behalf of their client for the best results. Attorney Karimi has a long history of getting his clients preferential plea bargains that include things like suspended sentences.
If you are interested in fighting your charges, you need to have the best defense lawyer possible. Experience is important when it comes to legal representation. Attorney Karimi is a former prosecutor so he knows what kind of evidence is the weakest and the strongest in a case. He will help you build a defense based on you and the circumstances around your case. The strongest defenses involve challenging the prosecution's evidence. If there is too little strong evidence against you, your charges may be reduced or dismissed. If you decide to go to trial, a strong defense will be needed to convince the jury that you are not guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
