Should I accept a plea bargain if I am offered one?

Before you speak to anyone associated with law enforcement after criminal charges have been issued against you, you should secure legal representation to help you consider all your legal options. Bearing all of that in mind, there is no reason you should accept the terms of a plea bargain without taking some time to understand everything that is at stake for you in the case. So, while it may turn out that it will be in your best interest to accept a negotiated plea bargain, there is a possibility that your case is more defensible than you think it to be.

If you have even been contacted by the police about an alleged crime, you should speak with a Westchester criminal defense attorney at the Law Offices of Richard A. Portale, P.C., to learn more about your legal options. To speak with an attorney about the particulars of your case, please call our Westchester offices at (914) 772-3166 today.
