Do I really need an attorney for my case?
Whether you plan on fighting your charges or want to work out a plea bargain
with the prosecution, having an attorney on your side can be invaluable.
No matter the charges you face, you can have peace of mind knowing you
have a trusted legal advocate beside you. A lawyer can help you fight
serious charges and negotiate for the best plea bargain when possible.
Without legal representation, you may not get as favorable an outcome
as you would hope.
Will I be passed off to a legal assistance?
When you come to Ahmad Law Firm, you are never passed off to a legal assistant
or inexperienced legal professional. You get to work directly with your
attorney, getting personalized legal counsel every step of the way. We
are not just your law firm, we are your counselor at law. We are also
available 24/7 to provide counsel, support and guidance.
What if I am not sure if I want to work with your firm?
At Ahmad Law Firm, we understand that selecting a criminal defense attorney
to handle your case is a big step. You need to make sure you have the
right legal advocate on your side who can defend your future and protect
your freedom when facing the most serious charges. That is why we offer
free consultations for all potential clients. We meet with you prior to
any commitment and discuss your case with you. If you are not convinced
that we are the right fit for your case, you can simply walk away!
I've been arrested. Now what?
The first thing you should do is make sure that you exercise your right
to remain silent. You do not have to speak with officers or investigators
about your charges! So long as you provide all personal information requested,
you are perfectly within your rights to decline answering other questions.
Next, you should retain a proven criminal defense lawyer right away who
can advocate on your behalf and ensure your rights are not violated in any way.
Will I go to jail for my charges?
We understand that the thought of going to jail can be scary and intimidating.
However, it is important that you keep in mind that you are innocent until
proven guilty! Right now, you have the chance to fight your charges and
get them reduced, dismissed, or even reduced. Not only that, but you can
work out a plea bargain with the prosecution to settle for alternative
options to prison time. For example, if convicted of DUI, you could work
out a deal to attend a substance abuse program rather than spend time
in jail. You may also be granted probation over jail time, especially
if your crime is a non-violent offense.
