Preparing a Strong Criminal Defense Strategy
Preparing a strong criminal defense strategy is key to an acquittal, reduced charge and reduced sentence. I leave no stone unturned in developing a defense. I will speak to the police, gathers witness statements, uncovers hidden witnesses and thoroughly evaluate the evidence, such as DNA and ballistic reports. I will also provide expert witnesses at trial when needed. I use my honed courtroom skills to present a strong case for the defense before the judge and jury.
I am always upfront and honest with my clients. If the evidence against you is powerful, a plea bargain may be a smart choice. I will work hard and negotiate with the prosecuting attorney for the best deal. At the same time, I will explain the pros and cons of accepting a plea bargain. This way, my clients can make an informed decision.
Juries are unpredictable and the outcome may not be favorable. If you’re unsatisfied with the verdict, I will file for an appeal. I’m experienced in the appellate process and know how to research case law and present a strong argument for appeal before the appellate judge.
