Criminal Defense FAQ's

  • If I am innocent, do I still need a lawyer? - Even if you are innocent, it doesn't necessarily mean that judges and jurors will agree with you. Unfortunately, your fate is not up to you, and if the judge or jury presiding over your case does not think you are innocent, you could be convicted and sentenced to harsh penalties. If you are innocent, you most certainly need to retain the services of a Beverly Hills criminal defense lawyer who will make sure that others are aware of your innocence too.
  • I'm only under investigation; no charges have actually been filed against me. Why would I need an attorney? - The investigative period is crucial to the future direction of a case, and it is vital that you have a Beverly Hills criminal defense attorney to protect your rights and look out for you during the investigation. If you don't have legal protection from a lawyer, investigators and police will take advantage of this and may violate your rights if they know that no one will be there to hold them accountable. If you have representation from Beverly Hills criminal defense attorney Robert Bernstein, he will be constantly aware of your rights and will take the necessary actions to protect them and prevent investigators from acquiring incriminating evidence.
  • There is so much evidence against me, why should I bother hiring an attorney if I'm going to be convicted anyway? - Even if conviction cannot be avoided, there are things a Beverly Hills criminal defense lawyer can do to reduce the charges and acquire a lesser sentence. Using his strong negotiating skills, Robert M. Bernstein will try to negotiate a plea bargain or will try to convince the judge to give you a lesser sentence. With the help of a lawyer, the penalties you will face from a conviction may be considerably less than if you didn't have an attorney to negotiate on your behalf.
