Defending Clients from Serious Charges
Getting arrested or charged with a crime comes with serious consequences that could put your entire future at risk. Fortunately, all people are equal under the law, and everyone has the right to defend themselves in court.
If you have been accused of a crime you did not commit or need to clarify a misunderstanding, Lee Law Firm, LLC can help with your criminal defense in Milwaukee.
We believe in equal justice and our mission is to speak up for you, with this belief.
What Does Criminal Defense Mean?
Criminal defense means preserving the rights of the accused under the law. Lawyers who practice criminal defense protect their clients’ constitutional rights and know and apply state statutes, case law, and the rules of criminal procedure to work in their clients’ favor.
If you are under investigation, get arrested, or need to deal with criminal charges, your defense attorney will work hard to obtain the best possible results in your case.
What Is the Difference Between Accused, Charged, and Convicted?
Accusations are informal allegations that you committed a crime. Charges are formal accusations from the government, and a conviction is a court declaration that you committed the crime. Every person in the United States is innocent until proven guilty.
Unless you have been convicted of a crime, you have the right to maintain and protect your innocence.
If you have been accused of a crime, contact an attorney right away. You could face accusations long before the government presses charges against you, and you can get a lawyer on your side as soon as you know allegations exist or an investigation is underway.
The sooner you contact an attorney, the stronger your criminal defense will be.
