When you are charged with a crime, a lot of things are stake that include:
- Your reputation
- Your work/job
- Your money
- Your marital life
- You may also have to do some time in jail
So, when so many things are at risk, you cannot just simply hire the first lawyer you get and hand over your case to him. You clearly need to assess his abilities, his past experiences and his credibility. Only then you can allow him to represent you in the court. If you show laziness in this regard, you may end up facing serious charges.
So, the lawyer you select should represent you aggressively in the court. Aggressive representation is sometimes misunderstood as something being done wrong by your lawyer. Your lawyer is thought to be a liar; create false evidence or being discourteous in the court. But this is not true. Aggressive representation means your lawyer will use everything that will help you prove innocent in the court while remaining in the boundaries of law. And if you really want to get your name cleared, you definitely need a lawyer who is brave and bold and can defend your recklessly in the court.
So, you need to find an experienced lawyer who is famous for his aggressive representation because the laws are so complex with so many twists and turns that a lawyer will only be able to defend you properly if he knows all these twists and turns.
Another benefit of hiring an aggressive lawyer is that when the opponent will come to know that, he may feel that he will lose the case and may agree for a settlement without fighting the case in the court. Settlements are usually beneficial as all you have to do is pay some amount of money and you will get your name cleared out of the case.
But what if the prosecutor’s style is also aggressive? What happen in the court, now, will only be shouting at each other which the court definitely does not approve. It is equally possible that the prosecutor adopts the same style of fighting which your lawyer is using. Suppose you are facing a divorce case, an aggressive style in this case will only harass your former partner because parties in such cases are already going though so much, they cannot bear further attacks and will give up the case sooner than later. That means, a very careful selection of lawyer in needed depending upon the type of case you are facing.
One important thing to consider is that many lawyers advertise their fighting style being very aggressive in the court. It is equally possible that they are using this particular phrase just to attract as many people as they can. After all, it is their source of earning and they will do everything to get as many clients as they can get. But when they come to representing you, may be they are not that much good. So a careful selection of lawyer is needed.
