Why Hire an Attorney?

Benefits to Hiring a St. Petersburg Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you have been accused of any type of criminal offense in the St. Petersburg area, it is absolutely necessary to contact a criminal defense attorney immediately. Still not convinced? Here are a few benefits of hiring a St. Petersburg criminal defense lawyer.

  • Your legal representation can defend your rights - If you are unaware of your Miranda Rights at the time of your arrest, the officer will most likely inform you. You have the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney, both of which we strongly advise that you exercise those rights.
  • We will advocate you best interests - After being charged with any criminal offense, it will become immediately important to have a protector of your interests. Here at The Law Office of Timothy Hessinger, our main priority is to ensure that your best interests are always sought after when dealing with any type of criminal accusation.
  • A criminal defense attorney can have your charges lowered - When working with a legal advocate, they will fight on your behalf to ensure that you do not face maximum penalties for your allegations.
  • Your attorney may get you acquitted - That's right. Our legal team has an impressive track record when dealing with virtually all criminal accusations in St. Petersburg. We have helped individuals have charges against them dropped, allowing them to remain free of any harsh penalties or convictions.
