Should You Hire a Lawyer if You Plan to Take a Guilty Plea?
If you intend on taking a plea deal, having a lawyer on your side can make a difference between a severe sentence versus a more lenient one. If you accept a plea with minimal or no negotiation, you are running the risk of having a more serious conviction on your record.
With the right help, a plea bargain can often result in a lesser charge, a reduced sentence, or reduce your punishment. If you hire an experienced lawyer, they may be able to negotiate an arrangement with the court so that you achieve a favorable result. You should consult your lawyer before making any decisions regarding a plea agreement. They will be able to tell you everything you need to know about the consequences of pleading guilty.
