Criminal defense work is a series of isolated contests.
Criminal defense work is a series of isolated contests. From the initial contact with the arresting officer, your rights must be protected, evidence must be preserved and witnesses must be identified. Your first court appearance must secure the lowest bond and take control of your scheduled court appearances. Police reports and investigation material must be obtained as soon as they are available. An evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the prosecution must be made quickly and additional witnesses and information must be gathered. A thorough discussion between client and attorney of the case will determine objectives and set goals.
A presentation and demand on the prosecutor for a dismissal or acceptable disposition is made with supporting arguments of the facts and application of the law. Education of the prosecutor to obtain the dismissal or agreement is continued. If an acceptable resolution is not available then trial preparation is explored. A commitment to a trial is made and a complete defense and attack is launched against the accusations. The success of this final contest will be determined by the efforts and results of the earlier contests.
Don't delay, call me immediately (970-871-7400) if you have questions about your situation.
