With a long tradition of excellence in criminal defense, our attorneys take an aggressive and proactive approach to every case. We believe in taking advantage of every opportunity to keep charges from being filed, having your charges reduced and reducing your exposure to punishment.
In most cases of homicide or felony assault, there are conflicting statements from victims and witnesses about the events leading to the alleged crime. Having an attorney on your team, before or immediately following a police interview, is a proactive measure which can greatly increase the likelihood of charges not being filed, charges being dismissed, facing a lesser-charge, or winning at trial.
Unlike most other law firms, in the early stages of criminal cases, we examine the evidence which the state will use against you. When evidence is examined at the earliest stage possible, it increases the likelihood of success. As early as possible, we test the reliability of confessions, witness statements and the conduct of police officers in conducting an interview of the accused. Taking such an aggressive and proactive approach may convince a prosecutor (s)he will have a difficult time proving you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Such actions can lead to early dismissals or a reduction in charges.
Our goal is to win your case at every opportunity. Our aggressive and proactive approach helps us identify the weaknesses in the prosecutor's case. By the time the case gets to trial, our aggressive attention to detail and early review of the evidence will usually have provided you with more favorable options.
