“ I wish I had retained him sooner, his help has been immeasurable. “
“ After having a consult with Steve, I quickly realized he was the attorney I needed on my side. His presence in the courtroom is unmatched and his straightforward personality never left me with uncertainty. My family and I are beyond pleased with the work he has done for us. “
“ Attorney Smith has represented me in the past and I would not hesitate to hire him again if I need an attorney. He is no-nonsense with a lot of experience who tells you like it is and does not waste time or your money. I definitely recommend him. “
“ I hired Steve after speaking with roughly 4 other attorneys. He didn't mince words, was straight to the point, and told me what to expect. He was spot on. I was happy with the result of my case and while I hope I don't ever need an attorney again, I would most certainly hire Steve to assist me and would recommend him to any family and friends. He isn't flashy, showy or self-praising like some others in the area. Very appreciative of that. “
“ Steve Smith is a very knowledgeable, straightforward and experienced attorney who is also very easy to work with. “
The attorneys at STEVE SMITH Trial Lawyers represent people who are charged with criminal offenses throughout Maine. We understand how frightening criminal charges can be. We also understand that the outcome of your case will impact your life for years. When you retain the services of a local criminal defense attorney, their job is to ensure that the prosecution does not have a case that they can prove in court. In many cases, plea deals can be negotiated, but it can be difficult to figure out just what evidence the prosecution and police will present at trial. Most cases are not black and white. There is considerable gray area. You need an attorney who understands how the system works and can work it to your advantage.
It goes without saying that the police and prosecution want a confession from you. Once they have a confession, they do not have to do any more work. Meanwhile, all of your bargaining power is gone. It is imperative to understand that you do have rights under the law. Even when a defendant is found guilty, they are still entitled to fair treatment according to the standards set by the state. The prosecution has the power to offer you a deal, but that deal still has to be okayed by a judge. Police have no power whatsoever to offer you a deal. They will frighten you into confessing. Your confession can never help you. It will only hurt you. Before you say anything, you should discuss your situation with your lawyer so that they can intervene on your behalf.
Regardless of your charges, there are serious consequences to being convicted. STEVE SMITH Trial Lawyers represent clients who are charged with everything from routine OUIs to first-degree murder. We can even help you restore your license after it has been revoked or suspended. Our criminal defense attorneys have represented clients charged with sex crimes, drug crimes, white collar crimes, property crimes (like theft or robbery), and violent crimes such as homicide or assault.
Juveniles who have been charged or convicted of a crime need representation from a skilled attorney. Juveniles who are caught with drugs or alcohol, charged with shoplifting, or found vandalizing property can be charged in juvenile court. Sometimes, however, the prosecution decides to charge them as adults, which can lead to a permanent criminal record. Do not let one dumb mistake define the rest of your life. Protect your rights with a skilled juvenile defense attorney.
If you have been charged with a crime in the state of Maine, the attorneys at STEVE SMITH Trial Lawyers can help you secure a result that you can live with.
