Criminal Defense Attorney West Palm Beach | Why You Shouldn’t Represent Yourself in Court

If you have been charged with a crime or if you have been recently arrested in Florida, the best thing you should do is to talk to a criminal defense attorney West Palm Beach. While the obvious drawback of hiring an attorney is the potential costs and fees, they are minimal compared to the life-changing costs that can result from not having the best possible defense to argue your case.

Why Representing Yourself is a Bad Idea

If you think you know the ins and outs of the legal process, you must understand that the odds are against you. You may not understand the weaknesses of your case and because of this, you will be unable to prepare to deal with and respond appropriately to the arguments that the other side has for you. Your emotions will make you cloud the arguments you represent, and you may end up making incriminating statements that can jeopardize your case. You also lack the knowledge and experience to represent yourself, so why take the risk?

Why You Should Leave Your Case to a Criminal Defense Attorney

Hiring a criminal defense attorney is important since they know and understand the judicial system better than you. They have built relationships with prosecutors and have dealt with several cases similar to yours before, so they already know what to do. Since they have the necessary experience, the chance of success is high and they’d help up speed the process of your case, reduce your fine and sentence and walk you through the entire process.

Better call Saul? More like, BETTER CALL OLSON!

“David W. Olson is the best lawyer I have come across. He truly will sit and listen to your story and no matter what he will fight for your rights. He is very compassionate, and understanding. He will work with you and does his job with a good heart. Mr. Olson truly has saved my life and gave me a second chance. You wont go wrong with hiring David Olson as your attorney. I highly recommend him and I am proud to have chosen him as my attorney.”


Found the Best!

“David Olson has represented me on two occasions. I have since referred two of my friends and my nephew to him, and they have all told me they’ll always be grateful for that. Mr. Olson somehow had the charges dropped in both of my cases (actually, I do know how, because he and his staff answered all my questions and explained in detail things that I never would have thought of).”


Compassionate Attorney

"My husband and I hired Mr. Olson to represent our son a Florida gun shot victim. We are New Jersey residents. From day one we felt comfortable with Mr. Olson and found him to be easy to talk to and a very good listener. This was important to us after our horrible experience with another attorney who was more concerned with hearing himself speak than our wishes."


Personable and Highly Intelligent!

“I saw David today to discuss some possible outcomes and possibilities of a probable future case. I did not know if I was going to be charged at all but I wanted to speak to someone to get a better idea of what I was looking at and what my options were. As soon as I shook his hand I felt very comfortable and respected. I laid it all out for him and asked him every last question I had, all of which were answered respectfully and intelligently.”


The Best of the Best

"I have known David Olson for over 20 yrs. now and have had my rough times in my past and unfortunately I ended up in trouble with the law and really needed help from a real lawyer. I needed someone to listen to my side of the story and really fight my cases in court for me and get the BEST results for my cases. A very close friend said the man for the job is David W Olson; So I contacted him & he came to me the very next day to hear me out and I knew he was the lawyer that would do the best for me and he did.”

Hearty Recommendation

"I hired Mr. Olson from recommendation by family member. He was immediately behind my situation and put me completely at ease. There were no false promises, very upfront as far as expectations and outcomes.

His assistant, Jessica was a joy to work with as well. They came to my house, interviewed witnesses, went above and beyond and always respond to my calls. I totally endorse this attorney."
