When Should You Hire a Lawyer?

Talking to the police before retaining a lawyer can be a huge mistake with irreparable consequences. First, you should know that the police are trained interrogators. They will use an interview as an opportunity to corner a suspect and get the upper hand. If they don’t get the information or statements that they are looking for, a polygraph examination will be next. You should retain an experienced criminal defense lawyer if you are the subject of a criminal investigation or charged with any crime.

Let ABDO LAW do for you what we have done for so many others. We will manage every aspect of your case to fight and win your case at trial. However, statistically, over 90% of all criminal cases are resolved by plea bargaining before trial. It logically follows that there is a 90% chance that your case will be resolved without a trial and that you would want an attorney that knows how to strategically negotiate a favorable outcome by other means to:

  • Avoid a felony conviction
  • Reduce a felony to a misdemeanor
  • Get a misdemeanor reduced to a civil infraction
  • Get multiple charges under control for expungement eligibility
  • Get a dismissal before trial because of a technicality
  • Get a dismissal for youthful offenders (age 17 to 23) pursuant to HYTA
  • Get a dismissal for first time drug offenders pursuant to 7411
  • Get a dismissal for juvenile offender with consent calendar agreement

The level of service exceeded my expectations, your devotion to my refusal to settle for a lessor misdemeanor was reassuring and inspired, and the team's creative interpretation of the law in finding a comparable civil infraction was legendary.

Matt and his staff...turned a terrible situation in my life into a positive life learning experience. Not many court cases end up being a positive in life, but Abdo Law delivered just that. Going with their firm was the best decision I could have made and I owe them everything for turning my bad decision into a extremely manageable situation. Thank you Abdo law!!!!
