“I was charged with the murder of my best friend, and held on a $1 million dollar bond. My family got Greg Robey on the case and he immediately started fighting for me. He found a forensic pathologist and a firearms expert to help my case. After a long battle with the prosecutors, I was freed. I can honestly say that Greg Robey saved my life!” -R.W., Warren, Ohio
If you have been arrested, you have a right to legal counsel. If you cannot afford an attorney, the state must provide a public defender for you. Public defenders are typically experienced and competent, but the deck is stacked against them. Here’s why:
If you have been arrested on serious charges and qualify for a public defender, you still may want to consider retaining a private attorney who can devote more time and resources to your case. Many defendants who don’t have the money themselves for private counsel are able to obtain the necessary funds from family and friends.
Hiring a skilled criminal defense lawyer can increase your chances of having your charges dismissed or reduced.
