There are some cases we can stop before they even begin! In some cases, we can put together a grand jury packet that we would present to the Grand Jury prior to the charges being indicted in felony cases. We have been very successful in these situations when they happen in the right kind of case. In misdemeanor cases, we can persuade the prosecutors to dismiss cases that should never have been filed in the first place.
There are many ways we can get your charges redueced down. We can negotiate your case with the Prosecutors to have the charges reduced based on many factors. Sometimes the lab results come back with less than originally charged amounts. Other times, the case was “overcharged” and fits into a more appropriate category. There is a lot of creative negotiation that can happen for you.
You need a lawyer who is a trial lawyer in action, not just in words. The Prosecutors know which lawyers actually follow through and try cases. If they think we really will go forward to trial and they could lose, they are more likely to listen to our case. We set cases for trial and try them every week for the past 25 years. We win motions to suppress and jury trials every year.
Skilled negotiation means just that – it’s not all talk, but skill and action that gets results! We will spend the time to prepare all the evidence, looking from both sides with our experience, before we talk to the Prosecutor about a plea bargain. We will never be happy with a first offer!
