When you are facing a securities fraud charge, it might feel like the odds against you are insurmountable. This isn’t necessarily the case. You have to work hard to come up with a defense plan, but that plan might help you to reach your ultimate goal.
Criminal defenses usually have one of two primary focuses. The first is to prove total innocence. Many people assume that this is something universal to all defenses, but it isn’t. Instead, some defense strategies are meant to minimize the penalties that a defendant will face. This is often the focus when the defendant knows that he or she did commit the crime.
We know that you might want these charges to just go away. They most likely won’t, so your best option at this point is to learn what choices you have for your defense so that you can work toward getting it moving. You need to work on the case you will present because the prosecution will be working on the case against you.
As you make the plan for your case, you need to think about what points the prosecution can make against you. These are the basis for your defense plan. If you don’t call the prosecution’s point into question, your defense might falter.
We understand that you might be concerned about the direction of your case. We can help you to develop a plan and work on that plan with you. Ultimately, you will have to be the person who lives with the effects of the outcome of the case so you have to be a leading force in the strategy.
