Your rights dictate you receive a fair trial for criminal charges

When a person is facing a criminal charge, they have to determine how they are going to handle their defense. Many cases are resolved through plea deals, but some are handled through criminal trials. There are good and bad points to both, so a defendant must ensure that they are carefully considering both.

Domestic violence cases present unique challenges

Domestic violence cases are often difficult for prosecutors. In some cases, the victims cooperate, and the case goes smoothly. The issue that often comes up is that the victim might opt to recant their statements, which can throw a wrench into the prosecution's case. There are some instances in which the prosecutor might choose to drop the charges in your case.

Learn all you can about your criminal case

Facing a felony charge is a serious event. You have to be sure that you understand the implications of this so that you can determine what type of defense strategy you are going to employ. When you find out that you are the subject of a criminal case, you must get to work immediately.

Determine how your defense strategy can impact your life

Facing criminal charges means that you need to take the initiative and work on your defense right away. You can't try to put this off until the last minute because trying to rush your defense strategy can lead to very costly errors. One of the very important decisions that you have to make is how you plan to resolve the case. Typically, you can either accept a plea deal or you can push for the case to go through a trial.
