Criminal Defense Attorney in Tulsa
Protecting Your Rights
When a person is found guilty of committing a crime, the charge can impact every area of their life. Even after serving a sentence, a criminal charge on the record can lead to restrictions in a person’s personal and professional life. A criminal charge can affect a person’s ability to find a job, their driving privileges, child custody decisions, and other aspects. It is important to understand all of the consequences of being charged with a crime, and to have somebody on your side who can prevent those consequences.
At The Law Offices of Trevor Furlong, I am here to provide the guidance you need to navigate a criminal case. I am committed to representing you and protecting your rights throughout your case, and fighting so you avoid the consequences that a criminal charge can bring. Contact my office today to get started on your case.
What to Do if You are Facing Criminal Charges
Following arrest, it is crucial to do what you can to protect your rights. Contacting an attorney is the most essential step you should take after being arrested. An experienced attorney will not only protect your rights, but will guide you through the legal process.
Your attorney should be one of the only people you speak to about your case. It is important to stay off of social media while facing criminal charges, and avoid sharing any details of your case with other people. In general, it is a good idea to “lay low” at this time to avoid any further issues.
How a Criminal Defense Attorney Can Help You
As your criminal defense lawyer, I will handle every aspect of your case. I will conduct my own investigation of your case, which may include interviews with you, speaking to witnesses, and gathering evidence. I will also look into the prosecution’s potential arguments and develop a strategy to refute them. If a plea deal is a possibility in your case, I will conduct negotiations with the prosecutor to ensure a favorable decision for you. If your case goes to court, I will fight for your freedom. Throughout the progression of your case, I will protect your rights, keep you informed on how your case is proceeding, and update you on any changes.
Benefits of Hiring a Lawyer vs. A Public Defender
If you are facing criminal charges, you have the option to hire an attorney or utilize the services of a public defender (or to represent yourself). Although using a public defender is less expensive than hiring a lawyer, choosing your own representation is one of the best ways to ensure your rights are protected in your criminal case.
Rather than handling several cases at a time (as a public defender does), I only take on a few cases at a time. This allows me to give you and your case the attention you deserve. I will consistently be available to help you. Additionally, I have more resources available than public defenders do. All of these factors allow me to provide you with the best representation available.
