Winning Criminal Cases Requires a Winning Trial Strategy
When it comes to criminal defense, the best defense truly is a strong offense. While many criminal cases are resolved before trial, in either a dismissal or favorable plea settlement, it is fundamental that every case be treated from the outset as a case that will go to trial. Rather than negotiate plea deals with prosecutors, our lawyers & attorneys have found that diligent and aggressive preparation for trial means a higher probability of securing dismissals or plea deals that do not require prison time.
Whether we go to trial with you or accept a plea on your behalf, it is your decision —every time. This means two things. First: your criminal defense lawyers must be prepared for trial. This enables them to advise you on your chances of winning at trial because they are prepared. Second: your lawyer must know what the best possible plea deal is in your case so they can help you pursue it. Trial preparation is everything. All of our actions are calculated from and flow from this fundamental precept.
