Criminal Defense - The Right Lawyer
When faced with criminal charges, finding the right lawyer quickly may feel overwhelming. Recently arrested individuals often need to talk to a lawyer as soon as possible. The most urgent priority is often getting a lawyer to help arrange release and provide some information about what's to come in the days ahead.
Once you have been accused or arrested, law enforcement will summarize their investigation in writing and submit the matter to the appropriate City or District Attorney’s Office for their consideration. Some cases may be capable of resolution before the filing of formal charges. The opportunity to successfully persuade for dismissal or reduction of charges is at this early stage, and requires the engagement of an Attorney as soon as possible.
Gathering the Evidence
We will gather relevant information from a variety of sources, including yourself, your witnesses, police reports, evidence lists, video and audio tapes, reports of experts and depositions. Some cases may also benefit from the services of a private investigator. This information enables your Attorney to evaluate your case and advise you whether to seek a dismissal of the charges, engage in a make an informed decision regarding plea bargain or settlement of your case, or take the case to Trial.
