Have you been recently charged with a crime in Memphis, TN? Before you make any statements to authorities, it is vitally important to understand your rights to seek the advice of an attorney because unlike civil cases, a criminal charge can lead not only to the loss of liberties and freedoms, in the most serious cases, it can lead to the the loss of your life.
It is imperative that any attorney you hire must have the legal expertise and skill necessary to adequately represent you. When you seek an attorney’s counsel, they must be able to explain:
- Why you are charged with the alleged crime(s),
- What the State must prove in order to convict you of the alleged crime(s),
- What defense strategies are available to you, and what the road looks like to get there.
Most importantly in a criminal defense case, the State must prove that you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. This is the highest burden of proof anywhere in the world.
The Main Street Law Firm is committed to ensuring that our clients are not advised to plead guilty to a case unless it is likely that the State can shoulder this burden. If we believe that the State can, our legal team will explain to you why this is the case and negotiate the most favorable settlement available to you.
