Should I plead guilty to my charges?

Once you plead guilty to a charge, you cannot change your plea afterwards, so it always advised that you talk with a criminal defense attorney at our firm before you do this. Pleading guilty means that you are admitting your conduct is punishable by the law and you know the consequences for your crime. You are also giving up your right to public counsel, trial by jury, and the right to confront and cross-examine your accuser. If you are not a US citizen, then you will risk getting deported for committing a crime. When you plead guilty, your options are significantly reduced so please let us review your situation and help you decide on a course of action before you admit to anything.
