Criminal charges can’t be ignored because they aren’t going to go away. Eventually, you will have to face them. If you have recently found out that you are facing charges, now is the time to start working on your defense strategy.
There are many factors to consider when you are trying to put a defense together. It is important that you consider each option and how it will impact your life right now — as well as into the future.
We are here to help you learn about what directions your defense can take. This depends on the charge you are facing, the circumstances of the crime, and the legal avenues that might be available. We know that you just want to know what is possible, so we will walk through the choices with you.
The method of defense strategy planning that we use depends on the direction of your case. If you are planning to enter into a plea deal, we discuss the matter with the prosecutor and try to negotiate the best deal possible. If you are going to take the case to trial, we will work on trying to find ways to make the jurors question the version of things that the prosecutor claims happened.
As you are preparing your criminal defense strategy, remember that it must be based on facts. You can’t have any untruths in it. What we can focus on in these cases is how your side of the matter is being perceived. It is possible that slight wording or demeanor changes might make the claims against you seem like an issue.
