Absolutely. You should hire a lawyer that specializes in criminal defense for many reasons. One is if you are charged with a crime your liberty is at stake; you have the possibility of going to jail. You need someone that does nothing but criminal defense law because they’re familiar with the laws, they’re familiar with the prosecutors, they’re familiar with how judges rule and how different judges preside in different types of cases. They’ve tried jury trials; they’ve tried contested omnibus hearings. They’re used to the criminal justice system and they know how to navigate you through it so hiring a specialized criminal defense lawyer is extremely important.
