Understanding Criminal Law

Criminal law refers to wrongs against the public and community in general. These offenses range from misdemeanor traffic citations to the most serious of felonies, such as sexual assault or homicide. The defendant, or person who is charged, will be represented by a criminal defense lawyer. The jurisdiction will attempt to convict the defendant through the efforts of the prosecutor. For reputable and seasoned help with your criminal case, our St. Augustine criminal defense lawyer works to ensure your constitutional rights are protected

Legal Guidelines Surrounding Your Defense

The courts impose a strict set of rules in order to make sure the trial is fair for both sides. You will be facing an experienced prosecutor who will do their best to gain a conviction against you. You need a reputable criminal defense lawyer who understands these complex rules and who can effectively navigate through the court process. The sooner you retain competent legal counsel, the more likely you are to keep from making a statement to the authorities that could undermine your case. Although law enforcement must read you your Miranda rights, the average person might not understand what these entail. Your attorney can clarify these constitutional rights and make sure you are protected through the court process.

We help clients resolve their court cases as quickly and efficiently as possible with the minimum amount of negative impact. If you have questions about your criminal case, contact our St. Augustine criminal defense attorney at Canan Law at (904) 849-2266 today.
