A friend of mine is a CW in a drug investigation after helping the agents with information leading to an arrest in exchange for freedom and testimony they decided to file charges anyways. how would he go about seeking counsel especially after he was made to quit a 17.00 manager position and take his 3 children out of school beginning in august til present.
How does your friend find an attorney? Google is a good place to start. If he cannot afford an attorney, he can apply for court appointed counsel.
There is a handy find a lawyer feature on this very website. Your friend can search by practice area and geographic location. Your friend needs to start looking immediately. The county attorney will have all of their information already, and your friend will likely have to prove that he didn’t breach their agreement.
No attorney-client relationship is formed by any answers I write on avvo.com. These answers are general and for informational purposes only. I am a lawyer, but I am not your lawyer.
