When you are charged with a theft or robbery crime such as carjacking, it is imperative that you seek out and hire legal counsel prior to answering any questions from the law enforcement officials or investigators working the case. By getting legal representation early, it might be possible to smooth things over with the police and DA such that charges will never even be filed. This is often the case if you hire a well-know, well-respected lawyer who the prosecutor would rather not have to go up against. Prosecutors have 100’s of cases. They want to WIN all the cases that they file. If a handful of cases have high-powered, well-known defense lawyers who are “known” for WINNING cases for their clients – why take a chance with those potentially troublesome cases? Might be better for the DA to keep their “win record” high and dismiss your case, or work out a deal with your defense attorney to reduce the charges to something “fair for all parties” that does not end up in a pointless battle that they could lose if they assign the case to an inexperienced staff attorney. It is always better to have legal representation early on so you have all possible opportunities to defend yourself behind the scenes or in court if necessary.
