Residents in Lake Charles or other Louisiana areas who find themselves facing legal problems are often left feeling worried and unsure where to turn for help. Although winding up in a situation that requires aggressive criminal defense does not necessarily mean one has committed a crime, carefully exploring all available options and acting alongside experienced guidance in choosing how best to proceed in court is often key toward obtaining a positive outcome. Whether you've been accused of drunk driving, drug possession or another criminal offense, half the battle is knowing how to connect with appropriate sources of help.
Being accused of a crime has a way of immediately impacting one's life in a negative way. On both personal and professional levels, criminal charges may impede your ability to function in a successful manner. Drunk driving, and drug-related charges specifically, may place your reputation at stake, not to mention the fact that such charges also threaten personal freedom.
In certain circumstances, it's wise to enter a guilty plea as part of a negotiated agreement offered with prosecutors. In other situations, it makes more sense to challenge proffered evidence due to a law enforcement officer's failure to adhere to strictly prescribed protocol during or immediately following search, seizure and/or arrest. In order to determine which defense strategies best suit your particular situation, you may benefit from seeking experienced assistance.
