How The Firm Fights Criminal Accusations
I explore every avenue to defend you and argue for a lighter sentence—or for your charges to be dropped entirely. I will work closely with you to determine which legal defense will work best for your situation.
Examples of defense strategies I may use include:
- The defendant cannot be proven to have committed the crime beyond a reasonable doubt: In order to charge someone with a crime, the prosecution needs definitive evidence showing guilt. Therefore, I can use this defense if the prosecution doesn’t have sufficient proof. Without substantial, credible evidence to show you committed a crime, there is no way to determine you are guilty in a court of law.
- The defendant committed the crime on accident: In most criminal cases, the perpetrator intentionally carried out the crime—at least, that’s the assumption. If I can show that the act in question was committed accidentally and without criminal intent, I have a substantial defense against the charge against you.
- The defendant has been accused due to mistaken identity: You may have been confused for someone else based on eyewitness accounts or video footage if the crime you were charged with was committed by someone else with similar features. In such cases, I will attempt to show that the wrong person has been arrested.
- The defendant was under duress or in immediate danger: If you carried out a crime because you were in fear of imminent danger, your actions might be considered not to be a crime since they were made under duress.
These are just a few examples—there are many other options for criminal defense depending on the facts of your case and desired outcome. I will find the best option that works for you based on your budget and needs.
