Confusion. Anger. Frustration. Desperation. Defeat. All very common emotions when dealing with a domestic violence charge in Middlesex County, New Jersey.
Here’s a quick look at some of the benefits of working with an attorney over trying to handle the domestic violence charges on your own:
Handling court papers
Self-representation: mistakes, misunderstanding and missed deadlines are so easy to happen that when you are representing yourself, all these things can happen way too easily. Handling court papers and getting everything in on time and mistake free is essential.
Attorney representation: Attorneys are paid to get things right and deliver everything on time. When an attorney has experience handling Middlesex domestic violence cases, that means he or she knows exactly how to handle all the necessary court papers correctly the first time around.
Presenting a Defense
Self-representation: Sure, you know your side of the story better than anyone but do you know the best way to present it to the people actually deciding your case? When it comes to domestic violence, it is almost impossible to separate all the emotions you have surrounding the charge and the individual and these things need to be controlled and channeled appropriately.
Attorney representation: Working with an attorney means that your side of the story will be presented in a way that best speaks to the judge and/or jury that are deciding your case. It also means that you can keep your emotions and frustrations in check and let the attorney do the persuasive talking for you.
Self-representation: In many cases, a domestic violence charge may not be the only legal issue you are facing at this time. While it may seem like you do not have the time or the money to work with an attorney right now-working with one can actually save you both time and money. Trying to navigate the Middlesex criminal justice system on your own is never a good idea.
Attorney representation: An experienced domestic violence attorney means that he or she also likely has experience defending any other charges you might be facing. Attorney Thomas Carroll Blauvelt has over 28 years of criminal defense experience, among other practice areas.
