Thousands of people are charged with criminal violations in the Los Angeles area each year. Unfortunately, many people facing criminal charges in Los Angeles choose to represent themselves. They may believe that it is unnecessary to hire a criminal defense attorney, despite the fact they are unfamiliar with the laws or court procedures. Because of the high stakes of criminal charges, it is never appropriate to represent yourself in a criminal case.
You can watch Gregory Caplan explain the significance of legal representation in his video, at Attorney Representation.
The Los Angeles Court system is stretched to its limit. Each criminal court handles dozens of cases each day. The judges and prosecutors are focused at resolving the volume of cases, and are not there looking out for your best interests. If you represent yourself and enter a guilty or no contest plea, you may cause irreparable harm to your life, career, and family, without realizing the repurcussions at the time. There is simply too much at stake to handle a criminal case without representation by a trusted and experienced criminal defense attorney.
