Plea bargains play an important role in criminal cases

Many people don't understand why people who are facing criminal charges would accept plea bargains. Some people don't understand why prosecutors would allow cases to be settled in this manner. The fact of the matter is that plea bargains play a big role in the criminal justice system.

A comprehensive defense is needed for domestic violence charges

Domestic violence charges often come with several forms of evidence. In many cases, there is proof of physical abuse. This might also come with claims of emotional abuse and financial abuse. All of this can be very difficult to fight against, but your defense must do just that. We understand that this might be hard for you to think about, but we are here to help you get your defense together and present it to the court.

Self incrimination, the truth and how they work in criminal cases

This same requirement to speak truthfully is something that you will encounter at various stages of the criminal justice process. If you aren't truthful, there is a good chance that you might face perjury charges for lying under oath.
