Once person is charged with a crime, we first seek to understand the circumstances and evidence surrounding the charge. We then work with clients to develop a strong legal defense, which usually entails challenging the evidence that may be brought by the prosecution.
Under our criminal justice system, all people are presumed innocent, and we work hard to main the innocence of all of our clients and avoid conviction.
In some instances, the prosecution may offer a plea deal. If this is the case, we work with our clients to determine whether this is something that they wish to consider, or whether they wish to fight the charge in court. Ultimately, the client is the one who makes the determination as to how we should proceed. Regardless of whether our client wishes to discuss a plea agreement or to fight at trial, we work hard toward getting the best outcome possible.
