Do I Need a Lawyer If I Am Charged With A Crime?

Yes!  Facing a criminal charge is scary, and a conviction can have lifelong effects.  Your criminal conviction will become part of the public record, meaning anyone can see you were found guilty of a crime.  This can make it harder to get a job or rent an apartment.  It can impede getting a professional license in many fields of work.  A conviction on your record may impact child custody, complicate the immigration process, affect your college or financial aid application.  You may be denied loans.  It can damage your reputation and harm your dating prospects.  People may avoid you in business or social situations once they know of your criminal record, including friends, family, customers, neighbors, church and other community groups or organizations.  A felony conviction can cost you the right to vote and own firearms.

It can be hard to outrun the effect of a conviction, so it is vitally important to have an experienced Nashville criminal defense attorney to get the best outcome.

How Will a Nashville Criminal Defense Attorney Help Me?

  1. Knowledge of the Legal System

Navigating the complex legal system can be overwhelming. Attorney Carla Grebert understands the law, legal processes, and rules of criminal law. She will help you understand your rights, the charges against you, and the potential consequences you may face.

  1. Building a Strong Defense

To get the best possible outcome, you need a good defense.  Carla Grebert will develop a strategy by carefully analyzing the evidence, identifying weaknesses in the state’s case and constructing a strong defense based on your specific situation.  This involves challenging evidence, questioning witness credibility, and exploring legal precedents to ensure the best possible outcome for your case.

  1. Protecting Your Rights

Everyone has fundamental rights, and it’s crucial that they are upheld throughout the legal process. Your attorney will ensure that police and the district attorneys adhere to these rights.

  1. Negotiating Plea Deals

In certain situations, negotiating a plea deal is the most strategic option. In those cases, Carla Grebert will negotiate with the DA to get lower charges, lesser penalties, or alternative sentencing options (such as probation) that better fit your circumstances.  This requires a good understanding of the law and the ability to advocate effectively on your behalf.

  1. Navigating Court Procedures

Court proceedings involve various rules, deadlines, and procedures.  If you do not follow court rules, it can hurt your case.  Carla Grebert will guide you through the legal process, ensuring that all paperwork is filed correctly, deadlines are met, and court appearances are properly managed.

  1. Emotional Support and Guidance

Facing criminal charges is emotionally taxing. Beyond legal expertise, Carla Grebert serves as a supportive advocate, offering guidance, answering your questions, and providing reassurance throughout the legal process.
