The criminal justice system is often mystifying to the people who are facing charges. You need to be able to think clearly about what options you have for handling the matter so that you can decide what you feel is best. We can help you find out what kinds of strategies you might employ in your case.
Many criminal justice cases end before a trial. This is done by a plea deal, but this is only an option when you admit that you did the crime because you will usually have to plead no contest or guilty to the charges. The benefit of plea deals is that you can usually either get the charges reduced or get the sentence possibilities down from the maximum.
We know that this is something that you have to think carefully about. You don't want to use this option if you didn't do the crime. You should also realize that there are cases in which it simply isn't possible to work out a plea deal. These are the reasons why it is a good idea for you to still work on your defense for a trial even if your attorney is still trying to work out a plea.
The unique components of your case determine what possible strategies you have for your defense. When you are planning a defense, you need to think about what the jury will need to know and what the prosecution might bring up against you. We can help you evaluate the case and determine what defense points can create a customized strategy for you.
