1. How Do We Attack A Case?

Case Review

  • First, it is important to conduct an in-depth case evaluation. That means that the very first thing our attorneys do is compile all of the discovery in your case. Discovery generally all police reports, witness statements, audio/video evidence, reports, and crime lab evidence. Out attorneys then go through the evidence with a fine-tooth comb, searching for any legal, factual, statutory, or constitutional issues. Depending on the facts of your case, it may be necessary to submit a motion to suppress evidence or to dismiss the case. That is why an in-depth review is vital to any case evaluation.

Negotiating the Case

  • Next, we discuss your case with the prosecution and relay any potential plea agreement negotiations with you. From this point, discuss with you the best strategy moving forward. This may entail accepting a plea deal in order to avoid jail time or to keep a crime off of your record.


  • Finally, if after we discuss plea agreement options and decide it is in your best interest to forego that process – we take your case to trial. Our attorneys have an abnormally high success rate at trial, having secured multiple victories for both felony and misdemeanor cases.
