How Can a Criminal Defense Lawyer Help Me?

Before a case reaches the courtroom, there are proceedings that are even more important. One important part of a criminal law case is plea negotiation. Because many defendants do not know the significance of this stage, they end up signing away important rights. Working with a professional criminal defense lawyer will help you preserve your rights.

When you work with a Cochran Firm attorney, we will investigate the criminal charges, look for evidence, and gather witnesses to support you.
