Answering Your Criminal Defense Questions
If you or someone close to you has been charged with a crime in Kentucky, you probably have many questions about the law and how it applies to you.
At Robinson Salyers, PLLC, our attorneys are here to answer any questions you have. We serve clients in Shelbyville, in Frankfort and throughout surrounding areas.
Following are a few common questions and general information we hope you find helpful.
Do I Need A Criminal Defense Attorney?
If you have been charged with a crime, the sooner you enlist the services of a skilled defense lawyer, the better. The state is already building a case against you. You need your own advocate who can counter the state’s efforts while building a strong defense for you.
What If The Police Violated My Rights?
You should talk to an experienced criminal law attorney who is well-versed in police procedure and constitutional rights of citizens. If it can be proved that your rights were violated, it may be possible to have your charges dismissed or reduced.
Will I Have To Go To Trial?
Every case is different. We work for the best possible outcome, depending upon the factors at play. In some cases, it is possible to get charges dismissed without the need for a criminal trial. When the state is more confident in its case, however, we are fully prepared to defend our clients’ rights before a judge or jury.
