Once our defense attorney is on your side, you can count on vigorous advocacy at all stages of your case. This includes educating you to make the best decisions for your future.
Do not decide to “just plead guilty to get it over with.” Remember, a record of a conviction will likely be a weight around your neck for years. Rather, work with your lawyer to determine the best strategy for the most favorable outcome attainable in your case.
Will you take a plea bargain by admitting to lesser charges in exchange for assurance of probation or will you persist in your defense, even if it means going before a judge and jury? Will you insist on your innocence, citing self-defense or mistaken identity? Will your attorney prove that evidence used against you was obtained illegally and get your charges thrown out altogether?
Each option deserves careful consideration as you face a potentially harsh case outcome. Rest assured that our attorney is responsive, persistent and determined to help you pursue the best results that the facts of your case will allow for. From years of working with law enforcement, prosecutors and judges, we have learned that a persistent, calm approach to legal problems most often yields the best results.
