Know where to start when you are planning your defense

Criminal matters must be taken seriously, no matter how minor the issue might seem. Your defense strategy can have a big impact on how your case ends. While you might not think that you have options, we can often figure out a way to call certain aspects of the prosecution's case into question.

We understand that you might not have any idea where to begin planning your defense. The answer to this might be in the charge that is placed against you. All criminal charges have certain points that must be met in order for the charge to stick. If you are aware of the incident that sparked the charge, you might be able to shed some light onto whether all of the points that are necessary were present at the time.

Once we are aware of what is going on, we can start trying to find things that we can question. This might be how evidence was handled or how it was collected. It could be calling witness accounts into question or finding ways to dispute what the prosecution claims occurred.

When you are facing criminal charges, remember that your goal is to introduce doubts about the prosecution's claims. The burden in these cases falls on the prosecution to prove that what they are saying is factual. By introducing doubt, you might be able to make jurors unable to convict you beyond a reasonable doubt.

We know that all of this might seem like more than you can handle. We are here to help walk you through the process and protect your rights as your case marches forward.
