Home  >  Criminal Defense FAQ  >  Plan On Pleading Guilty

If I plan on pleading guilty do I still need an attorney to represent me?

Yes. You may wish to plead guilty to the charges brought against you, but doing so without the help of an attorney could mean the difference between spending a year in jail and only serving several weeks of community service. There is a wide range of punishments and penalties for various crimes and a talented lawyer has the experience and knowledge to make sure that your punishment is minimized.
