Hiring a criminal defense attorney is probably the most important decision that a person accused of a crime can make. In many areas of the law a person might be able to fumble through it on their own and actually get to the finish line without the assistance of an attorney. In the criminal justice system that is very, very unlikely, in fact, the setup for a public defender if you can’t afford a private attorney. However, having the assistance of an attorney during the course of this matter would be essential to its outcome. The rules are complex and the case law is just voluminous. So there’s no way that a private citizen or a lay person could be expected to know everything that’s going to be required to properly defend themselves. So hiring an attorney is probably job one.
