Our Defense Strategy
Our criminal attorneys include a former prosecutor which allows us to develop a strong defense and negotiate based on our knowledge of the prosecution’s strategy. Even a minor possession charge can have serious consequences.
We will sit down with you, discuss your concerns and determine your goals regarding the outcome of your case. Only then can we pursue the resolution you truly need. Once we decide on the course of action to take in your legal proceedings, we will execute the handling of your case with in-depth knowledge and precise skill.
Whether the charge is a misdemeanor or a felony, we seek to have the charges dismissed or reduced. Many clients charged with possession have had no previous encounters with the criminal justice system, and we believe that they should not have their lives ruined because of one mistake.
We receive many referrals from former clients. They send their relatives and friends to us because they have experienced our thorough and diligent representation and know we do everything we can for our clients.
