Criminal Defense

The Importance of Quality Legal RepresentationIf you or someone you know has been charged with a crime, you need a defense attorney with the skill and knowledge to intervene on your behalf and protect you. The criminal courts are adversarial in nature. The district attorney's office views criminal accusations from the perspective of the prosecutor, with the goal of demonstrating guilt and obtaining a conviction. Your defense attorney views the accusation from your perspective and represents your interests. These opposing views meet in the courts, with the hope that a true understanding of events emerges and justice is served.

That's why it's critical that you have top quality legal representation if you are facing criminal charges. You need a lawyer who knows the law and will present your view of events, verify the legitimacy of evidence, and ensure that police follow approved procedures. Law enforcement has at its disposal many resources: police officers and detectives, crime labs, determined prosecutors. Your defense attorney is your advocate in the process, making sure that your voice is heard and your rights are protected.
