Criminal Defense

How Criminal Law Really Works

Most people’s experience with criminal law is based on crime procedural television shows and legal dramas, so they are surprised to find out that in the majority of cases, the reality is quite different.  There are many steps in the legal process that are not glamorous enough for television.  It is these steps, however, that are where the progress really happens.

Most criminal cases don’t actually end in a trial.  The bulk of the work happens behind the scenes, in talks and negotiations with district attorneys, the study of statutes and case law, careful examination of the evidence, and petitioning for further disclosure from the Prosecution.

What’s at stake is fundamental justice – civil rights, liberty, and fairness – not things to take lightly.  In criminal law cases, what you need is legal expertise.  You want a strong and knowledgeable ally in your corner.
