How Can You Represent People Who Know Are Guilty?

Once people learn that I am a federal criminal defense attorney, they frequently then ask me “How can you represent people who you know are guilty?”  The answer is this – everyone is entitled to the protections of our Constitution.  The Amendments to the Constitution guarantee (in part) that people are presumed innocent and entitled to a trial to determine their guilt.  It also provides that they are entitled to the assistance of counsel—an attorney to protect those rights. I believe in those protections offered by the Constitution, which makes it very easy for me to represent someone to aid in protecting those rights.  Many times, people do not invoke those rights and instead decide to plead guilty to the crime they are charged with.  My job then is to make sure that they get the best deal possible, and then the best sentence possible.  I help people decide whether to invoke that right to go to trial based upon several factors.  These factors include the weight of the evidence against them.   However, despite what I might advise a client, the decision of whether to go to trial or not is always that of the client.   If you are threatened or charged with a federal crime, you need the assistant of a federal criminal defense law firm such as LGR Law, LLC. We represent people charged with federal crimes in Manhattan, White Plains and throughout New Jersey, including Newark, Montclair, Verona, Cedar Grove and Caldwell.   We will fight for your rights and protect your freedom.
