Why You Need a Criminal Defense Attorney to Represent You

A criminal defense attorney can help to navigate the legal system as an ally to you or your family member. While not a therapist, a criminal defense attorney will be there to help you with the emotions that accompany criminal hearings and trials. Among many professional routes that your case could follow, a criminal defense attorney may be able to help negotiate lesser time served over a rehabilitation program. Familiar with the system, a criminal defense attorney is best suited to procure necessary evidence to help your case. T.J. Norton, III is an experienced criminal defense attorney that can make it a streamlined process to justice.
