An attorney can review your case for your best possible defense. Did the police have probable cause to search or stop you? If not, an attorney can petition the court to suppress any evidence that came out of an illegal search or arrest. Can the state prove all the elements of your offense beyond a reasonable doubt? Even if the evidence against you is overwhelming, an attorney may be able to negotiate a better plea agreement than you could.
