Even the famous need a lawyer.
Continuing the string of high-profile football players needing criminal defense representation, Packers tight end Andrew Quarless has now been charged with a misdemeanor for discharging a firearm in public.
He joins De’Andre Johnson (misdemeanor battery charges for punching a woman in the face) as the most recent football players to need effective criminal defense representation (the most notable player, of course, being Ray Rice, whose charges for domestic violence have been dismissed).
You can be assured that these gentlemen understand the importance of professional legal representation. They rely on their lawyers to help them understand their rights and the options available to them in protecting those rights.
What Can An Attorney Actually Do For Me?
Criminal defense cases (and your legal rights) often depend heavily on strict deadlines and complicated technical rules. In addition, you will need to manage many non-legal matters such as damage control for your reputation, both personal and professional.
Experienced criminal defense attorneys understand how to advise you holistically in this regard and you can bet they are providing this advice to their football clients in these cases. They can give you the technical legal answers you need as well as many of the practical answers you want regarding how to deal with any public fallout related to your criminal charges.
But I can’t afford one!
Yes, you can. Lawyers are available who will work with you to craft a fee arrangement responsive to your individual situation and financial resources. When a lawyer can’t do that for you, the lawyer can often refer you to someone who can.
If you find yourself or a loved one facing criminal charges, you can begin to understand your rights and how to protect them by contacting attorney Craig Kuhary. He can be reached in Waukesha by phone at 262-442-6681 and online.
