What If I Can't Afford A Criminal Defense Lawyer?

Criminal defendants have the right to a public defender, a state-designated and no-cost lawyer. These pro bono lawyers typically have heavy caseloads. Sadly, they can only give each case so much time—often less than what it needs.

Fortunately, there are private lawyers who take care to offer affordable, cost-effective legal aid—like ours at Law Office of B.D. Williams. We are proud to handle each case quickly and efficiently, wasting no time but also giving your case the time it needs and deserves.

When Do You Need A Criminal Lawyer?

Most legal professionals recommend getting a criminal lawyer for any type of criminal case, even for a minor charge. This is because even a minor charge may lead to a permanent criminal record, fines, jail time, strained relationships, and stigma for years to come.

The more severe the charge, the more important it is that you get a lawyer to protect your rights.

Why Hire A Criminal Defense Attorney?

Having an attorney gives you a better shot at getting your case dismissed or charges dropped.

The truth is that the deck is almost always stacked against the defendant in a criminal case. Police officers and prosecutors have the advantage. Not only is it their job, but they have already gone through this process countless times.

If you’ve been charged with a crime, you need someone whose job it is to protect you. That’s exactly what we do at Law Office of B.D. Williams. Let’s even out the playing field. We will do whatever we can to get the best results for you, your future, and your family.

What To Look For In A Criminal Defense Attorney

Finding the right criminal defense lawyer for your case will take some research. With your future on the line, it is important to ensure that you’re selecting the attorney and law firm that’s best suited to your case.

Some of the most important things to look for in a criminal defense attorney are:

  • Experience: How much experience does the attorney have? The more experienced they are, the better. For example, our lawyer has over 20 years of criminal defense experience. In this time, he has gotten to know the courts in Indianapolis and throughout Indiana like the back of his hand.  
  • Career history: Have they always practiced criminal defense law? Or are they only starting out? Having years of experience working as a defense attorney will be more useful in a criminal case than years spent practicing another area of the law. Our defense lawyer takes great pride in the fact that he has never worked as a prosecutor.
  • Approach: How much time are they willing to spend on your case? Will they tailor your defense strategy to your situation? With us, you will be our top priority – we’ll do everything within our power to advocate for you.
  • Awards and accolades: Have they won any awards over the years? Most legal awards and accolades are based on an attorney’s peer reviews of their legal skills, their compassion for their clients, their ethics and the like. Our award-winning Indianapolis attorney has fought hard for his clients and has earned the respect of his peers along the way.
  • Case results: Has the Indianapolis attorney won cases similar to yours? Make sure to check out their practice areas and results.
  • Client testimonials: What do past clients have to say about the attorney? This is one of the most effective ways to find out whether a lawyer is all talk. At Law Office of B.D. Williams, we are very honored by the glowing client testimonials we often receive.

Your selection of a lawyer to handle your criminal defense issues may be one of the most important decisions you ever make. In all professions, experience matters, and the field of law is no exception.

At Law Office of B.D. Williams, our defense attorney has over two decades of experience resolving all types of criminal charges, from domestic violence to drug crimes, DUI, theft crimes, weapon charges and more.

Experience breeds excellence. Selecting an experienced and proven defender is what matters the most and is what you will find at Law Office of B.D. Williams in Indianapolis.
