Why should I hire a lawyer if I know I am guilty?

Many people want to admit what they did was wrong and accept responsibility. A noble thought. Many times, however, the charge is different from the facts. Or, the consequence of a conviction can be avoided, you just are not aware of it. If you are charged with shoplifting and you want to go to court and plead guilty, you may not realize that in that court, persons accused of shoplifting can request pretrial diversion, a program that results in a dismissal if the accused completes community service and a class. If you plead guilty in court it is on your record forever and can impact schooling, housing, and job prospects forever. The right lawyer can help you avoid conviction, protect your record, and accept responsibility.
