When my friend was arrested on assault charges, he was very afraid that he was going to have to spend a lot of time in jail. He knew that what he had done wasn’t right, but he didn’t think he deserved to go to jail for a long time because of it. Initially, he asked a friend to help him with his case, but between the two of them they didn’t have the legal knowledge that they needed.
They decided that in order to win their case they would need someone else helping them to figure everything out. They ended up seeking legal assistance very quickly. This was a really good idea because their law team was able to start getting motions ready for the trial and prepared my friend for the questioning that he was likely to undergo.
