What Marley Law Will Be Able to Do for You

Even if you are 100% sure you will be found guilty, we are 100% sure that you will be getting the best outcome by having us at your side. There are many services and actions we can perform to best represent your case:

Legal Advice – It is always a good idea to know where you stand. A defense attorney can inform you of the allegations and penalties that can accompany them while strategizing defense strategies.

Challenge the Prosecution – The prosecution will be presenting evidence to the court and it is the defense attorney’s job to dispute the alleged evidence. Without an attorney, that evidence could be more incriminating than it actually is. A lawyer could challenge it and potentially get it dropped.

Arrange a Plea – If it seems like the case will go unfavorably, your attorney may speak with the prosecution or court to see if a plea could be made. This could entail reduced sentences/fines or even alternatives to jail.

Make Sure the Penalties Are Fair – In the result of a conviction, a defense attorney can make sure that the penalties fit the crime. They can make sure the court is not simply “trying to make an example” out of you and that there are no overly extreme penalties.

Penalties Can Be Much Worse Without a Defense Attorney

Without a defense attorney present at your trial or sentencing, penalties could be way worse than they would have been if Marley was there. Defense attorneys make sure the justice system is fair to all individuals present and that the evidence being presented is pertinent/accurate.

An example of why it is important to hire the services of a defense attorney is a simple one. It could be the deciding factor between going to jail or having a probationary period still on the outside. Or paying the maximum amount of fines instead of the minimum amount.
