Most criminal cases begin with a charge for an offense, indictment by a grand jury, or arrest. Sometimes you may not be arrested, but rather just be asked to speak to the police, or have other indications that you're under investigation. If you speak with the police, you could unknowingly waive your protective rights.
Getting you out of jail and back to your life is our first goal. There are many factors that influence your release from jail, such as the seriousness of the offense, whether you have a history of failing to appear for court, or if you present a flight risk or a danger to others. Your defense begins the moment you call us.
The prosecution may offer a plea bargain, which is typically a reduced sentence or plea to a reduced charge in exchange for a guilty plea. As your attorneys, we will ensure you understand all potential convictions and sentences if you are found guilty, and will counsel you to either accept or reject the plea.
Once the case is set for the trial, negotiations for a plea may be closed. As a defendant, you are not required to testify against yourself and this right cannot be used against you. Having an attorney to advocate for you is the best way to protect your freedom and your reputation. We are experienced trial lawyers.
