WHY DO I NEED A LAWYER?
Any time you are investigated for allegations of a crime or charged with
a crime, your life and liberty are at stake. As a consequence, you may
be facing jail, prison, fines and the loss of your personal liberties.
You also have certain constitutional rights such as the right to counsel,
the right to remain silent and several search and seizure guarantees.
When and how to properly assert your rights could literally mean the difference
in your life. Lawyers at the Karpel Law Group are highly skilled in protecting
clients and defending the rights of the accused. Our job is also to guide
you through the very complicated criminal justice system. Our lawyers
are also dedicated to obtaining the best possible results for every individual
client and to ultimately make your case go away. You cannot do this alone.

When qualifying someone to be your lawyer, ask yourself these questions:
- Can I speak directly with the lawyer who will be actually representing me?
- Am I able to contact the lawyer easily (weekends and evenings)?
- Is the lawyer experienced?
- Does the lawyer practice exclusively criminal defense?
- Do I feel comfortable speaking with the lawyer?
- Are the attorney fees reasonable and is the attorney willing to work with
- Does the lawyer understand my case and my specific and particular issues at hand?
