How do I know if I should take a plea agreement or go to trial on my criminal charge? Does it matter if it’s a theft charge or a drug crime or a DUI/DWI?
The decision of whether to take a plea agreement or go to trial is always case and fact specific. This applies to all types of criminal charges, from DUI or DWI to shoplifting to murder. The decision of whether to take a case to trial or accept a potential plea agreement can only be properly evaluated after knowing all the facts and circumstances relating to your case.
We would certainly caution you against providing those details on any public forum or the internet to get the answers you want. Instead, we would encourage you to speak with your attorney in detail. If you don’t like your lawyer’s opinion or advance of the matter, seek a second opinion from a different defense attorney so it will be covered by attorney-client privilege.
We offer free initial 30 minute consultations to our criminal justice clients and can be hired for a more in-depth review of your case.
