How can a criminal defense attorney help me?

Being charged with a crime can be the end of the line for many. It doesn't have to be that way in your situation. Criminal charges are often dropped, reduced or thrown out for various reasons. The difference between being convicted and having the charges dropped is usually due to the work of an experienced criminal defense attorney in Norman.

The biggest advantage of working with a criminal defense attorney is the fact that he or she will be able to negotiate with the prosecutor on your case. The attorney could either negotiate a reduced charge and sentence or to have the charges thrown out altogether.

A criminal defense attorney will also know what it is like to argue in the courts within your jurisdiction and in front of certain judges. They will know what to expect when the courtroom doors close and how to handle the situation based on previous experiences.

You want to work with a criminal defense attorney who can take a long, hard look at your situation and provide you with an honest assessment. This includes explaining your chances for being released and for picking up a sentence that sends you to jail. You want to know the truth about your case.

Another advantage of having a criminal defense lawyer on your side is the fact that he or she can bring in expert witnesses to testify on your behalf in an effort to gain an acquittal.

What Our Clients Say

“Matt Swain helped me out of a situation that would have otherwise cost me money I didn't have, and precious time I couldn't spare. And he did it selflessly. If I ever need to turn to an attorney in the future, he would be my first call. I highly recommend him to anyone in the Norman/OKC area! His entire staff was kind and helpful from day one. Thank you all so much!�—Laura M.
