Fort Pierce Criminal Attorney
Getting arrested is a scary experience for anyone. It’s easy to feel all alone and at the mercy of the system – the police, the prosecutors, the judges and the court staff; none of these are your friends. This is a bad position to be in, because it might convince you to plead guilty to whatever offenses are charged against you, even when the evidence wouldn’t support a conviction on those charges if the case went to trial. When you have an experienced Fort Pierce criminal attorney on your side, you are no longer alone, and you’re not at the mercy of anyone. You’ll know that your rights are being vigorously protected and defended, and that you’re being treated fairly in any plea negotiation or courtroom hearing. This is the confidence and comfort you get when you hire Baginski Brandt & Brandt to handle your Fort Pierce criminal case.
Fort Pierce Criminal Defendants Need Strong Representation
According to crime rate statistics, violent crime in Fort Pierce is 67% above the Florida average and 78% above the national average. Property crime rates in Fort Pierce are high as well – 27% greater than the average in Florida and 35% over that average nationwide. How do these crime rate statistics affect you when you have been arrested and charged with a violent crime or property crime in Fort Pierce? Police are more likely to aggressively stop and detain suspects and make arrests based on the barest amount of suspicion. Prosecutors will be elected to office on a platform of strong enforcement and seeking the maximum penalties for criminals. If your case gets to a jury, local Fort Pierce jurors may be quick to convict and find guilt believing anyone put on trial must be guilty.
With all of these elements stacked against you, you need a smart, strong and skilled Fort Pierce criminal defense attorney who will stand up for you and vigorously challenge the allegations and assumptions made by police, prosecutors and juries. At Baginski Brandt & Brandt, we fight hard to see that you receive a fair trial and fair treatment throughout the process, that your important constitutional rights are protected, and that you have the benefit of all available defenses that may be used on your behalf. If the prosecutors don’t have a strong case, they should not be able to secure a conviction under Florida law. If you don’t want to fight the charges, we’ll work to obtain a favorable result that gets you treatment or probation or avoids jail time wherever possible. Whether in or out of court, our Fort Pierce criminal defense lawyers will fight to get the best outcome in your particular circumstances.
