When Do You Need a Criminal Lawyer in Queensland?

When it comes to the complex and varied field of criminal law, there is no substitute for the legal skill and expertise which criminal defence lawyers bring to the table. Most civil cases can be resolved through legal representation by lawyers well versed in multiple fields of law, however, at Resolute Legal, we believe that a criminal case is a much more serious matter and requires the unique skills of a criminal lawyer. Here are just a few reasons you should consider hiring a criminal defence lawyer.

Remaining Objective

Criminal cases can have serious consequences. While it is technically possible to represent yourself in court, a criminal case can be an emotional experience, eroding your ability to remain objective and preventing you from defending yourself adequately.

Criminal law firms also have the resources and manpower to argue your case from a purely legal perspective, finding weaknesses and holes in the prosecution’s case. The prosecution’s job is to win the case against you, and your lawyer’s sole responsibility is to stop that from happening using the justice system.

When Legal Skill is Critical

Criminal law is a vast and technical area of the law. Defending a criminal charge requires thorough knowledge and application of the Criminal Code and all other acts pertaining to it. Defending a criminal case is about more than just the facts, it is about understanding what the criminal justice system requires and how it can be leveraged. The paperwork and documentation required for a criminal charge can be daunting, and mistakes can adversely affect the outcome of your case or cause exhausting delays.

Mitigating Damage

A criminal charge can damage your reputation even without a guilty verdict. Criminal law firms work hard to ensure that your professional and personal reputation is protected as you navigate the complex world of criminal law. The goal is to get you out of the courtroom with the least amount of damage to your life and livelihood.
