Guiding You Through the Criminal Defense Process

We never want a client to say, “I wanted to go to trial, but my lawyer made me plea.” We will give you our honest assessment of your situation, but at the end of the day, the decision about whether or not to go to court is yours. There are three ways a criminal case can be resolved:

  • The charges could be dismissed entirely. Unfortunately, this does not happen very often.
  • We can negotiate with the prosecuting attorney for a lesser charge or a reduced sentence. This is often the best option because it is less costly and involves less risk than trial.
  • Every criminal defendant has a right to a jury trial, even first-time offenders. Trials can be risky, so many clients choose to plea instead. Although only a small percentage of criminal cases go to trial, it may be in your best interests to argue your case in court.
