In the United States we have an excellent judicial system; however, it is not perfect and it can be extremely intimidating for the uninitiated. Without someone to protect your rights and help you navigate the process, that system can be fraught with obstacles and potential traps. The attorneys at Bennett & Michael are committed to helping our friends and neighbors in Cannon County, Tennessee with all of their family and criminal law matters.
If you have never before been in trouble with the law, the criminal justice system can be extremely overwhelming and intimidating. It can be a challenge just trying to figure out who to trust and how to make crucial decisions. At the same time, an arrest – even without a conviction– can have a negative impact on your career, your social life, and your family. Naturally, you want to limit the negative impact to the extent possible while also being careful not to make a wrong step that could damage your case down the road. That means being very careful to whom you discuss your case and what you say about your case to anyone. Remember, your conversation with your defense attorney is confidential; however, anything you say to anyone else is not. With that in mind, do not discuss your case with your spouse, your mother, or your cellmate. No matter how loyal you believe that person may be, the reality is that the State has the power to force anyone to testify against you down the road. Only discuss your case with your criminal defense attorney.
If you are involved in a family law case, the odds are very good that emotions are running high. That is precisely when mistakes are most likely to be made. Don’t risk the outcome of a custody battle, adoption, divorce, or guardianship. Instead, allow us to help you prevail. The family law attorneys at Bennett & Michael understand the volatile nature of many family law legal issues as well as how important the outcome is for the parties.
