Why Hire Dutko Law, LLC?

A criminal defense attorney should look out for your rights, and have the ability to protect his or her client from making critical errors during the initial stages of the criminal justice process. Having a criminal justice attorney in Lehigh, Berks, Northampton Counties, and other Pennsylvania areas to consider the Commonwealth’s evidence enables the client to make an informed decision whether to plead guilty or to go to trial. A lawyer with excellent negotiation skills should be able to work with the Commonwealth and negotiate a deal that is in the best interest of their client.

However, negotiation skills are not the only trait to look for in choosing a criminal defense attorney; you need to consider the manner and tone the attorney takes in dealing with you and the Commonwealth. A good trial lawyer can reach and convince people of their position. You need a lawyer with a combination of skills that enables you to enter a plea with confidence, and one qualified to represent you at trial should your case require it.
