When you are accused of a crime, think about what these people want:

  • Attorney for Accused Milwaukee, WIThe police officer telling you “it’s just a ticket, there’s not really anything you can do.”
  • The general practice lawyer who takes any case that comes through the door.
  • The government employee making the leaflet telling you where to find a lawyer.

You Are Only Guilty If You Are Convicted®

What are their motives?

Some police officers just want to avoid a day in court, securing an overzealous charge. Some less experienced attorneys could take a “fee to plea,” not seeing all the possibilities for minimizing your charges (or getting them dropped). No matter how sympathetic the police officers and prosecutors in your case act, they are not your friends. Their jobs are to be swift executors of the law, processing your case with the necessary charm to make their own experience easier – no different than someone who works at a call center.

Be careful listening to the people instructing you on how to get convicted.
