Law Offices of Attorney Steven J Topazio


We all know that a criminal conviction will change your life, impact your family, and make finding a job difficult. Representing yourself when you are in trouble is usually not your best option. 

The prosecutor is unlikely to listen to arguments coming from a person who is not a lawyer.

A criminal lawyer, like a prosecutor, has been taught and studied criminal defense law. The prosecutor however may not take you seriously if you try to make a legal argument, convince him of your innocence, or attempt to negotiate a plea bargain, because you are not a criminal attorney.

Without the proper legal advice from an experienced criminal defense lawyer, you might unwittingly say or do things you believe are in your own defense that is later used against you by the prosecutor. Police and prosecutors are trained professionals in the area of criminal prosecutions and will capitalize on every mistake you make and will certainly take advantage of your inexperience in court. A criminal lawyer is the trained professional you need to fight the prosecution and win your case.
