4 Ways a Criminal Defense Lawyer Can Help Your Civil Rights Case

When you are arrested and left facing civil rights charges, it’s natural to feel overwhelmed about the next steps to take. Unless you happen to have extensive criminal defense experience, you likely do not completely understand how a civil rights trial works or what you need to do to get the best possible outcome for your case.

The most efficient route to that solution is to consult and partner with a dedicated and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney. Board-certified attorney Thomas Feiter has proudly served his local community for many years now and is ready to give your case the attention and extensive representation it deserves. 

4 Ways a Criminal Defense Lawyer Can Help Will Your Civil Rights Case

When you decide to partner with an aggressive and compassionate attorney from Fighter Law, you are giving yourself access to someone who will immediately begin working on the following important aspects of your case:

Conducting an Investigation 

First and foremost, your attorney will begin an investigation into the circumstances surrounding your arrest. This will include interviews with any eyewitnesses, the reviewing of official reports and other important documents, as well as a thorough examination of the physical evidence. This allows them to begin to find gaps in the prosecution’s story to begin building reasonable doubt. 

Other focuses stemming from the initial investigation can include the arresting officer’s conduct. Did their arrest or gathering of evidence violate your constitutional rights? If so, your attorney can file a motion to have the unlawfully obtained evidence thrown out. 

Building Your Defense

As gaps are found and inconsistencies are identified, your attorney will begin to build up your defense. Using the collected evidence, a theory of defense will be developed and ultimately presented in a fashion that will properly demonstrate the prosecution’s weak case. This can also be done through an alibi or by proving the evidence found by the prosecution is not strong enough to establish reasonable grounds for your arrest and charges. 

Representing You in Trial

As your voice in the courtroom, your criminal defense attorney will help represent you and the decisions you make. This will include the jury selection process, objections to improper evidence, cross-examination of the prosecution’s witnesses, and the demonstration of your defense. 

As your representation, your attorney is there to help you make the big decisions required for a civil rights case. For example, you may not know if testifying at your own trial is a good idea or not. Your attorney can help walk you through the process and act as a knowledgeable guide for any concerns or questions you may have. 

Communicating With Your Family

When you hire Fighter Law to oversee your civil rights case, you are hiring an attorney who will help represent you holistically, which means having a people-first attorney to conduct communication with your family. Civil rights cases can take an extended period of time to come to fruition, which means a lot of time will have to be spent focusing on the confusing and overwhelming parts of the process. Having a knowledgeable attorney acting as an intermediary between you and your family will greatly ease any stress or fear they may be feeling.
