Louisville Law Firm Frequently Asked Questions Video
Will I look more guilty if I hire a lawyer?
Hiring a lawyer never makes you look more guilty, it’s just a good decision. Again, the Commonwealth of Kentucky is going to have a lawyer, the prosecutor. You should have counsel as well. It’s important so that you understand all of your rights, all of your options. Nobody expects you to go in there knowing the law and to know what your options are. In fact the judges get annoyed with people who don’t have lawyers, because then they have to waste their time trying to explain things to you. So it is preferred by everybody in the system that you have counsel, but most importantly, it protects you.
