Are you facing criminal charges that could attract a hefty fine or imprisonment? A competent criminal lawyer can help to mitigate or negate the charges you are facing. Experienced Defense Lawyers understand that no criminal case is like another; they spot unique aspects of your case and use tactics to safeguard your rights and interests. Here is how.

Cross-Examining Witnesses

Defense lawyers have the necessary experience to identify weakness in the statements from the prosecution witnesses. They are keen to use the information from the witnesses in your defense. Criminal defense attorneys will cross-examine the witnesses and further weaken the evidence presented by the prosecution.

Plea Bargain Negotiation

If chances of getting acquitted are minimal, a plea bargain could change your fate. Your lawyer can help you negotiate for a reduced potential sentence or elimination of some of the criminal charges filed against you. Prosecutors are, usually, willing to negotiate regarding the disposition of your case.

Fighting for a Fair and Just Sentence

If you are found guilty, your lawyer may be able to protect your rights and interests by negotiating for a more lenient sentence. For instance, in California, many felony charges carry a sentencing range, which has the possibility of probation, a low term prison sentence, a middle term prison sentence or an aggravated term. Your lawyer should be doing their best to obtain a probation sentence for you. In addition, on both misdemeanor and felony sentences, your lawyers should be trying to secure an alternative option rather than incarceration. For instance, house arrest, wearing an electronic monitor, going into a treatment program, or community service are possible options instead of time in jail or prison.

Navigating the Legal System

Our legal system is based upon written laws, starting with the U.S. Constitution down to state statutes and municipal codes. These laws must be followed, and your lawyer should be staying up to date on developments in the law. Staying cutting edge on legal changes helps an attorney capitalize on the law for the advantage of their client. For instance, we have, recently, had changes in the law that allow for criminal charges to be dismissed based upon prior military service, mental health issues, or just because the offense is a misdemeanor. Our practice is focused on Criminal and DUI defense, and we make sure we are always taking advantage of these developments for the benefit of our clients.
