Common Questions for Hutchinson and Huffman, P.A.
Let us examine a few of the most common questions that we receive here at Hutchinson and Huffman, P.A.
How Do I Know if I Need a Criminal Defense Lawyer?
If you are being interviewed, questioned or investigated by police, or if you have been arrested on criminal charges, you can benefit from working with one of the experienced West Palm Beach defense lawyers with Hutchinson and Huffman, P.A.
Many are hesitant to contact a criminal defense lawyer before they have been arrested, but the reality is that many arrests can be avoided entirely if you hire legal representation early in the process. In cases where an arrest does occur, the trajectory of your case can be altered in your favor quite significantly. Even someone who is totally innocent of any wrong-doing may say the wrong thing and that remark could be misconstrued or taken out of context in a way that could be harmful at trial. So by hiring a seasoned lawyer early on to help you with any police dealings, you can minimize the chances of causing legal troubles.
Once you have been arrested, anything you say (and even do) can and will be used against you, so at this time, it becomes even more important to hire an attorney who can look out for your interests and protect your future.
What Types of Criminal Cases Do You Defend?
At Hutchinson and Huffman, P.A., we handle a wide variety of criminal cases, ranging from a simple and relatively minor misdemeanor to the most serious, stigmatized felonies.
The areas of practice at our West Palm Beach law offices include:
Driving under the influence cases, including first-time offenses and more serious subsequent DUI offenses involving injuries;
Drug crimes, including drug possession, possession with intent to distribute, trafficking and manufacturing;
Violent crimes such as assault and battery, attempted murder, manslaughter, and murder;
Theft crimes, such as shoplifting, receiving stolen property and burglary;
Sex crimes such as sexual battery, rape, unlawful sex with a minor, or sexual misconduct;
White collar crimes, such as fraud and embezzlement; and
Domestic violence cases, including domestic assault and battery.
How Much Will It Cost to Hire a Defense Lawyer?
The cost of hiring a criminal defense attorney varies quite dramatically amongst clients, as each case is truly unique.
Some cases can be resolved in very short order, with just a single hearing, while other cases require significant time, effort and multiple court proceedings, ultimately culminating in a trial.
For this reason, we recommend speaking with our legal team to discuss your case; once we learn more about the legal issues at hand, we can provide a more concise and accurate idea of the legal fees involved.
