Hiring A Denver Criminal Defense Attorney For Theft ChargesHiring A Denver Criminal Defense Attorney For Theft Charges

Being charged with any crime is never a pleasant experience, but charges of theft can become even more complicated. There are numerous types of theft charges, broken down into either misdemeanor or felony charges. Understanding the different types of theft, and what they mean to you, can be a confusing process.

If you've been charged with theft, your best option is to find a criminal lawyer to assist in your defense. An experienced attorney will understand the different clarifications of theft and can best assist you in understanding the options that are available to you. Without an understanding of what you're actually charged with, your criminal defense is unlikely to be successful.

You're guaranteed access to counsel by the Bill of Rights, but using a court ordered attorney is not likely to yield the best results. Typically they will work on a range of different types of cases, which means they won't have the experience to best represent you. You're looking for representation from someone who's already learned the ropes - not someone who is learning as they go along.

It's also important to realize that, despite their best intentions, court ordered attorneys typically have a lot on their plate. This often results in pressure to accept a plea bargain. There are times when accepting a plea will be the best choice for you, but it's important to be sure you're working with a criminal lawyer who will carefully weigh your options before recommending a course of action, as opposed to using a plea as the all purpose defense in every situation.

If you do need to take your case to trial, choose an attorney that has trial experience. Part of effectively arguing a case involves filing the correct motions and introducing the right evidence. However, another part involves understanding human nature and knowing how best to sway the judge and jury. The more experience an attorney has in the court room, the better they are likely to be at knowing how to make a strong case for your criminal defense.

As you're looking for the right attorney, you should also be paying attention to how comfortable you feel talking about your case. It's common for people that are charged with theft to feel uncomfortable discussing their case, or to worry that they'll be unfairly judged before they've had their day in court. Choose an attorney who listens to you, and makes you feel comfortable discussing even the most uncomfortable details of your case.

Finally, be sure to ask about the results achieved by any criminal lawyer you're considering. You're not going to find a lawyer who's never lost a case, but you don't want to choose a lawyer who's never won one either. Look for a strong record of acquittals, dropped charges and plea bargains for lesser charges.

No matter what you're being charged with, it's important to find the right legal representation. Look for an attorney who has experience in winning theft cases, and an attorney with whom you feel comfortable working.
