Are lawyer results guaranteed?

No. GUARENTEEING RESULTS VIOLATES THE RULES OF professional misconduct. THE RULES strictly bar a lawyer from making a misleading communication and any guarantee of a particular outcome is clearly a misleading communication.

Sometimes the Best Defense is a great Offense!

If I am innocent, why do I need a lawyer?

Unfortunately, yes. The standard for law enforcement to charge someone is probable cause. Probable cause is a much lower standard than the beyond a reasonable doubt standard that is required to convict someone. As a result of these varying standards it quite possible to be charged with an offense despite the fact you are might be innocent. It is imperative that you have an experienced criminal defence attorney to navigate this high stake process.
